House Bill 303 received a “Do Pass” recommendation this afternoon by the Senate Health and Human Services Committee. Please thank the committee members for their support. Especially Senator Nan Orrock, who made the motion, Senator Horacena Tate who seconded it, and Senator William T. Ligon who will carry the bill on the Senate floor

Quick action is needed for the next hurdle: The Senate Rules Committee must hear the bill and schedule it for a vote by the full Senate. They are meeting at 4 PM tomorrow. Please contact them (message at their offices and/or e-mail) TONIGHT AND TOMORROW BEFORE 4 PM and ask them to place HB 303 on the calendar for a vote by the Senate on Friday April 1.

After that, there are only 2 days left of this session for the bill to be acted on. The General Assembly will be in recess next week and convene for day 39 on Tuesday, April 12 and the final day 40 on Thursday, April 14.
