4/12/22 Action Alert

Depending on what happens tomorrow, this may be the last Action Alert for this session. But who know – the way the leadership has handled bills, we could see some new disaster filed, heard in committee, and passed, all in one day.

Here’s the comment line number:  800-372-7181. For all the bills below, leave a message for your own legislators, an entire chamber, or the entire legislature.

I’ve sort of listed these in what I think is the order of likelihood – so for example, I think there is a good shot at stopping the charter school funding bill, while I think there is a much smaller chance of stopping HB 8. But, we shall see.
