85% Bills

House Bills 752 & 753, based on our proposal, were introduced 2/28/13 by State Rep. Rory Ellinger to reform the 85% law.  Unfortunately, the House Speaker did not assign them to a committee until the last day of the session, which meant that they died in committee. They will be refiled for the 2014 legislative session. 

You can lobby your legislator 
locally while the legislature is not in session.
