Bills of Interest

As we move closer to the April 5 "funnel" deadline, committees will start to make decisions about which bills will live, and which will be set aside for the year.  To stay alive, a bill must have been voted out of one chamber (House or Senate) and then out of committee in the opposite chamber. So basically, House Files need to be out of Senate committees, and Senate Files must be out of House committees.  

Whether you lobby on the bills you care about from home or at Advocating for Change Day on Wednesday, March 27, it is important for you to take action if you want your issues to survive the second funnel deadline.
