|Representative Kathleen Willis became the house sponsor of SB 1966, originally titled "PUBLIC DEFENDER BAIL PROGRAM", and is using it as the vehicle for her anti-gun initiative "FIX THE FOID ACT" under House Committee Amendment 1. It's a complete rewrite, nothing remains of the original bill.
This bill just passed out of the House Judiciary - Criminal Committee Hearing held today, on a partisan vote. It is now headed for a vote on the House Floor.
It is critical that you call your State Representative now and urge that they not support this bill, SB1966, as amended, in a floor vote.
Emotions can run high when thinking about legislation to remove your rights. Please remember that you will be talking to a staff person for the representative and your roll here is not to try to debate that person, and their roll is simply to take your information. They will be keeping a tally to give to the representative, so keep it brief, polite and understandable.
