On August 27th the Assembly Appropriations Committee voted to move SB 261 out of committee. It now heads to the Assembly for a full vote, likely to occur the week of August 31st. There, the bill needs 41 votes to pass. This is the last chance for supporters to tell their representatives in the Assembly to vote YES on this important bill. Go to the “Take Action” page on this website for a sample letter. If the bill fails in the Assembly, it is dead. If it passes, the last stop will be the governor’s desk for his signature or veto. Be a part of moving SB 261 to victory!
