Members and Associates,
SF229/HF374 are now on the floor in both bodies. This is the policy bill that was vetoed by the Governor last session. While we do not know when it will be brought to a vote, we know that you contacting your state senator and representative is an important step in the process (perhaps the most important for us).
SF188 is also on the senate floor although the companion house bill HF51 is still in committee in the house. This bill is the bill that has only the lottery restrictions on it, but is still important to our future. Please ask your senator and representative to support this as well.
In contacting your elected officials, tell them who you are, what charity you represent, why these bills are important to you and your charity and how you would appreciate their support when a vote is taken. Let anyone else that is connected to your organizations also know about the bills and ask them to lend their support with contacts as well.
Your support is very much appreciated and crucial to our success on these measures.
