THANK YOU FOR SENDING YOUR APPEARANCE CARD  – WITH UNITY COMES CHANGE,

We have a member representing FAC today in opposition of the SB 234, as is, and will strongly suggest an accurate definition of “a day”.  Approximately 200 appearance cards will also be delivered to the meeting in opposition of SB 234, as is.

Senate Bill 234 will be heard by the Senate Rules Committee this Thursday, March 4, 2021 at 9:00-11:00 A.M.

This bill will redefine the meaning of “day” to include “part of any calendar day”. FAC has submitted a letter in opposition to the Bill which you can read here: Letter to Rules RE SB234. Additionally, we plan to have a member speak before the meeting.

We are calling on all members to contact the members of the Senate Rules Committee by calling and emailing them via the information below, and asking them to OPPOSE SB 234. Please remember to be polite and professional. Remember, they (absent Senator Book) were not the one introducing this bill, they are considering it, so be mindful of that when communicating with them.
