Fellow IVFA Members; we have reached what is called mid - term or mid-session for this years General Assemble.
That is a time when any bill that did not get a committee hearing or did not pass out of a committee hearing is considered a dead bill. Many of the bills we have been watching will fit into that category. Some we hate to lose and others we are very glad they are now dead.
The other major thing that happens will be the passing of the bills…
Those bills that passed the 1st house or chamber of origin (Senate Bill in the Senate and House bills in the House) will now be sent to the 2nd house or the other chamber and the process begins all over.
Our current bill track list will reflect the bills still alive that we will be watching during this second half.
Please look at the bill tracking each week to see where we are with those bills that involve our services.
Reading the Weekly Update Report
When the Legislative Session is underway; reports will be posted weekly, usually on Friday or Saturday. Bills are posted in numerical order, House Bills (HB) and then Senate Bills (SB). There is a brief description about the bill. Other information may be provided, such as the bill "Author", which committee it has been assigned to, and some history on the progress of the bill. Those bills designated with a SUPPORT have been identified as bill we think will help us. Those that are marked as OPPOSE have been identified by the IVFA Legislative Committee, as those bills we need to pay close attention to. At the bottom of each bill if we find that your help is needed to either support or oppose you will find a comment in the NOTE area.
