Capital Eye Vol. 13 No. 8: One Week to Go

Legislative committees will be meeting Saturday with one week left in the session. Several bills need our help to pass or expire. See below for critical actions needed now. Saturday calls or e-mails would be very helpful right now!

One Week to Go
Anti-protest bill HB 4615 (so-called protecting critical infrastructure) is now in Senate Judiciary. Calls to Chair Charles Trump are needed to ask him to ignore it and let it expire. Back-up messages to Judiciary members to vote no are also encouraged, if it does make the committee agenda. This is the bill that adds felonies and high fines tor those charged with civil disobedience (or even conspiracy to do so) at so-called "critical infrastructure" sites!
