19 Mar Legislative Update and ACTION ALERT9!
Legislative Update: CALL NOW! Action is needed to move Senate Bill 211 out of the House Judiciary Committee.
Good news! Senate Bill 211 “Children’s Equal Access Act,” is placed on the House Judiciary Committee calendar for Wednesday, March 21, 2018 at 9:00 am.
The Children’s Equal Access Act (SB211) takes the “guess work” from the courts’ decision-making process and gives them definitive guidelines. You can read and share the Talking Points here.
Action Needed: Calls and emails need to be made to all House Judiciary Committee members before 9:00 am on March 21st. You can call the committee members or send a group email to all of them. You’ll find the information below.
When calling and emailing, urge the House Judiciary Committee members to vote YES on SB211. Communicate to them that you deeply appreciate their commitment to doing what’s right in Montgomery by putting children and families first. Please vote YES on SB211. (It’s that simple, no long conversation needed.)
As a reminder, please always be respectful and courteous with your communications.
