Parolee Voting Laid Over

Testimony was heard in the State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee yesterday regarding the Election Bill (Parolee Voting). There were so many people there to testify that the Chairman of the Committee decided to lay it over until next week in order to accomodate everyone who hadn't had a chance to speak. This is a great opportunity to contact Committee members and ask them to vote yes on SB 83.
