HB 0590/SB 0869 (Van Huss/Crowe) – Moves on with obstacle

590 move through H F, W&M SUB-Committee with unanimous vote. The bill still carries a Fiscal note which is worrisome because Even if passed through all committees that would put it “behind the budget”. This is how opponents would try to neutralize 590’s effectiveness.


HB 590 is scheduled to be in Full Finance Committee on Tuesday February 18, 2014 at 3:00 PM in Room 16 in Legislative Plaza. We must pass this committee to be scheduled to go to the floor.

Below you will find a list of the committee members and he is requesting that we contact them and please ask for their support. I have also included a list of co-sponsors of this bill who are on this committee. We need to contact them also and thank them for their support in the past and ask them to please assist us in gaining additional co-sponsors on the bill as well as votes in the financial committee. Everyone in the last committee was cordial and we are hoping for the same results from this committee.
