UPDATE ****NO GUNS ALLOWED TODAY IN THE COMMITTE MEETING AND IN THE GALLERY – THEY WILL BE CHECKING BACKPACKS AND WANDING PEOPLE. THEY HAVE HISTORICALLY ALWAYS ALLOWED US TO CARRY INTO THE COMMITTEE ROOMS. DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHY RED FLAG IS BAD? THESE IDIOTS ARE JUST CHOMPING AT THE BIT TO TURN US IN BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID OF THE SIGHT OF A GUN AND EVERYONE THAT CARRIES****
HB 5 is being heard today at 2:30 pm in room 321.
Here is a list of things to do if you are going to the Capital and for the majority of those who can’t make it today, lets hit the phones and emails.
If you are going today and you have never been to the capitol:
Arrive EARLY! Moms are shipped in from all over to fill up the seats so we cant talk. Give yourself ample time to park as well. It snowed yesterday, and the sidewalks and parking lots are icy. The high will be in the ’20s. Be careful and dress warmly.
When you enter the roundhouse, you are on the second floor. Go up one floor to find the Senate Judiciary Committee meeting.
No hats allowed in the committee meetings. Cell phones off. No videos or pictures. No clapping or making noise.
They are only going to allow a FEW people to speak. If you get picked, make sure you have a very clear, concise, 1-2 minute speech planned. But don’t be surprised if they only allow 2-3 people to talk.
Moms come in BIG numbers – we need to be there in big numbers as well.
ALSO – if you have time before or after, there is a sheet you can sign in every person’s office. I HIGHLY recommend you visit every one of their offices and tell them to VOTE NO ON SB 5! Remember – the secretaries DON’T represent the senators, so please be kind. If you are rude, I will find out about it.
Here are the offices:
