IMMEDIATE Action Item: Both of Our “Good” Bills SB11 and SB243 Will Be Heard at 8AM on Monday January 18th in the Senate Courts of Justice Committee, Have you Contacted Your Senator?


 

I posted back on December 18th  about SB11- To Remove the Employer Information from the VSP Registry and on January 7th  about SB243- Stating that the Usernames to Every website and Passwords are NOT required to be registered and extending Email Registration from the Impossible 30 Minutes to One Business Day. 

The first Virginia Senate Courts of Justice Committee meeting will be next Monday January 18, 2016 @8:00am and both of these Bills are scheduled to be heard http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?161+doc+S0310118 



This meeting is where the patrons will speak for their Bills, the public can speak 'for' or 'against' the Bills and so would the Virginia State Police Legislative Liaison. If the Committee votes in favor then the Bill moves onto the Senate Chamber for a full-vote, if they vote against, the Bill dies for 2016 and can not be resurrected. 

These are BOTH very important Bills that I have previously found patrons for and they have all previously failed due to the VSP opposing them and House member’s total indifference and hate towards my advocacy/outspokenness and/or RSO’s existence. 

I will be attending the meeting on the 18th but I do not plan on making a statement ‘for’ the Bills, unless they appear to be going straight into the toilet. Sometimes my silence is better for this platform. Anything that is taken the wrong way by a die-hard tough on Sexual-Predator Legislator could damage the success of these Bills and I want them to succeed, not fail.  

If you support one or both of these Bills I need you to act IMMEDIATELY! 

Please Email or call your one Virginia Delegate AND your one Virginia Senator and ask them to vote “Yeson SB11 AND SB243 on Friday January 14th BEFORE they all head home for the weekend between 2-5pm! 

If you are feeling extremely industrious please contact every Committee member too (list is below).
