H5074 Update



The House Judiciary Committee recommended the passage of H5074 Sub-A yesterday.  As such, you can finally read the Sub A version of the bill online.   The bill will now go before the entire House.  My understanding is that in most cases this just a formality, as the House members typically follow the recommendation of the committee for non-controversial bills.

We must now find sponsors to introduce the legislation in the Senate.  When the legislation is introduced to the Senate, there will be one final chance for public comment.  We will post an update once we have any information about the status of this legislation in the Senate.

Ultimately, if the legislation is passed by both the House and the Senate, assuming the Governor doesn’t veto it (why would he?), it will become law.
