Update and Action Alert: HB1366 “Recipe for Disaster Bill” Was Heard and Amended on February 11th But No Vote Was Taken, It Has Been Postponed Until Monday February 16th at 8AM

Today in Senate Room B of the Virginia General Assembly Building HB1366  was heard. 

Two readers/supporters both from northern Virginia came down to oppose HB1366 to the Committee and I was extremely grateful to see them. The Executive Director of ACLU of Virginia also took the opportunity today to oppose HB1366 publicly, another positive development. Unlike in the House where I was the only one opposing HB1366, today there were 3 new faces and I believe it made a great deal of difference. Thank you both for coming! 

A vote was NOT taken, the text was rewritten once and still no member was ready to vote on it so they put it off until next Monday February 16th. 

Here is a summary of today’s events:
