Legislative update: Registration bill voted down

 
Posted on March 8, 2015 by Mike Means

Hello HBA Members;

Another week of the session is down. One more week until another deadline is here.

Week didn't end well as our Registration bill was voted down. We will try to resurrect and get reconsideration early next week to keep it alive. Some issues were raised that can be resolved but that is hard to do while debate is going on. It means we will have to strike the title and work on some amendments. If we are not successful it is back to the drawing board.

As I mentioned, this coming week is another deadline. Floor action must be taken in the house of origin or the bill is dormant for this session. That means, for example, a Senate bill must be heard on the Senate floor before adjournment on Thursday or it is done for the year. I expect next week we will have a lot less bills to worry about. Let's hope ours isn't among them!

Here is the link for the full tracking list.

As usual, let me know if you have any questions.

Mike Means, State EO
