HB512 is scheduled for a hearing and possible substitute bill vote on Wednesday, March 21.

At this time we have no information about what may be included in the substitute bill. Precedent would suggest that amendments meant to appease the most vocal groups without changing the substance of the bill are likely. Be careful about getting too excited about skunkweed disguised as roses!

Please check the committee notice Monday and contact the Chairman’s office if you’re interested in testifying on HB512. At the present time testimony is not listed on the hearing notice.
