Public showing at Judiciary I committee meeting
HB78 is in the Judiciary committee right now, and if it passes there, goes on to the Health committee and then the appropriations, heath and finance. It has to go through all of these! I met with my house rep the other day (who is also on the Judiciary committee) and he said the bill is dead on arrival basically. I think we need to be at every committee meeting that this bill is discussed because they allow the public to attend and make comments. If we go to these committee meetings and speak up, it will make a difference. This committee meets every Wednesday at 12:30pm in the legislative building. Rep. Daugherty's (the chariman of the committee) secretary it will be up for discussion and review within the next month, but the date is not set. Basically, they put out the schedule on Monday for what bills will be up that Wednesday. I think we need to monitor this schedule and be ready to ask people to attend! I also think the more emails and calls the chairman of the committee gets, the better. I gleamed a lot of information from my meeting with my rep regarding the reputation and belief about Rep. Kelly from Charlotte who is sponsoring HB 78.
