Now, just because a bill is not called for a vote does not mean it is dead! We still have two very dangerous bills alive and kicking that could end the closing of state institutions and begin the dismantling of our community system.In my opinion, the reason House Bill 4809 #2 and Senate Bill 3564 have not been called for a vote is because the votes are not there for passage. We need you to continue to communicate with your Senator(s) and House members to oppose SB 3564 and HB 4809 #2. Thanks for your actions on these terrible bills!
