Most bills still under consideration by the 2014 state legislature must be voted on by the end of this week to become law this year. If you have not yet sent your legislators an email, or called their offices, this is your last chance this session. Encourage action on the bills described under the Bill Tracker tab and in the attached report(or discourage action, as appropriate). If you have previously sent an email, send another. Thank your senator or representatives for action requested in your previous email, and ask that they take additional actions as needed and described on the attached Workplan Update. Thank you for your support of our effort to improve the opportunities provided through our state’s economy, to increase safety and opportunities provided through our criminal justice system, and to protect and preserve our environment.
