By News Release @ 9:47 PM :: 9546 Views :: Energy, Environment

On Friday, January 22, the Senate voted to pass HB444,SD1 on third reading. It will now go back to the House of Representatives for action, where it originated.

Action will now be focused on the House which has to agree to the amendments made by the Senate. If they agree, then all House members will need to vote to approve. If the House disagrees to the amendment, it will then be given to a Conference Committee made up of members of the Senate and House Judiciary Committees.

Immediately, we need you to: 

Call, e-mail or fax a message to your State Representative. It is very important to emphasize if you are a voter & resident of their district
