ADVOCACY UPDATE - HOUSE ED&A COMMITTEE VOTES UNANIMOUSLY AGAINST HB 561
ED&A Committee member Rep. Carol McGuire (R-Epsom) stated that once the Secretary of State's office testified that the bill would not save any money, it was not worth pursuing. She additionally commented that the Department of Cultural Resources is well run.
Thanks to all who contacted their legislators, attended the committee hearing and testified eloquently and effectively in opposition to the bill!
We are optimistic that the recommendation of ED&A will be upheld by the House.
