We have got to make sure to provide legislators with input in advance:
The hearing for HB159 was re-scheduled in a last minute effort to accommodate the legislature's busy schedule. Clearly, these things happen and I am not willing to suggest any backroom dealings led to the schedule change.
Many folks were caught off guard by this schedule change.
All told, HB159 was passed by the Senate Conservation Committee, and is now headed to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Again, please visit the CNMAO Blog for the in's and out's of why this bill should not pass as it is today.
And if you don't think this is an HSUS supported bill, well, think again.
