HB1666 the Vulnerable Users bill passed out of Conference Committee today. Now on to a final floor vote and then to the Governor for his signature. It looks good. Donʻt celebrate till the Gov puts his pen to paper, but this has been a tremendous accomplishment.
It looked dicey a couple of times. A committee wasnʻt scheduleing a hearing. Your out powering of testimony on the morning of the last day to schedule bills made the difference. Your strong support made this success possible.
Thank you all. Remember, it takes strong public support to pass legislation. You do make a difference and the best place to be involved is right here at the Environmental Caucus. Whether you just write an email when needed or you take a bill in hand as our treasurer Tony Austin did with this bill we need your participation.
