Senator Sandy Pappas carried the bill and championed it in the Senate. It sailed through the MN Senate Rules Committee with little opposition--except from Sens. Fischbach & Hann.
Great work all and thanks to those of you who were at the committee meeting.
The bill now moves to the floor of the Senate for a vote. Watch for the alert that will go out when a vote is scheduled.
Here are some things you can do to help:
- If you live in Senator David Hann's or Senator Michelle Fischbach's districts--please call them and ask them why they voted no and ask for their support on the floor vote.
- Call your own Senator and secure their vote (find out who represents you here).
- Continue calling Representative Joyce Peppin to schedule a hearing on HF212.
- Call your own Rep and if they support, ask the to press for a hearing on the bill. (find out who represents you here).
