This afternoon, the chair of the Senate Rules Committee announced that CS/SB 1128 would be “temporarily postponed” and not considered by the Senate Rules Committee today.

THANK YOU to all who contacted members of the Senate Rules Committee in opposition to CS/SB 1128 and in support of the Simmons amendment to the bill.

The Senate Rules committee may schedule another meeting later in the week and may agenda CS/SB 1128. If this bill is rescheduled, please continue to reach out to this committee and urge them to support Senator Simmons’ amendment, which would address the League’s concerns with the bill.

We will keep you posted as we learn more.

Thank YOU for your advocacy! Your efforts are making a difference!
