Subject: Call to action:: HB1979 - Committee Meeting
Virginia needs your help with our helmet reform bill. I know that most of you
can not attend the committee meetings discussed below, but please read the
following and write the delegates listed and ask that they support HB1979 and
get it out to the House floor for a full vote:
Just got the news that HB 1979 will be heard in the House Militia, Police and
Public Safety Committee THIS Friday (Jan. 21). The committee meets at 9AM in
House Room C.
Bernie has been in Richmond working with Jim at the Capitol this week. I
talked with both of them a few minutes ago and they had just finished meeting
with each of the members of the House Militia, Police and Public Safety
Committee. They feel very confident that we will make it out of this
There are still a few committee members on the fence, however, so each of us
needs to write each committee member.
There is a very likely chance that we will cross over to the Senate this year
and end up in the Transportation Committee. Your presence is definitely needed
at that meeting. It would be perfect if you can make BOTH of these committee
meetings. If you can only make one, please plan to make the Senate
Transportation Committee meeting.
When you write these members, please keep in mind that most are friendly to
our cause and some just need a little bump to move over to our side. Delegate
Janis is on this committee and he is patroning the bill, so that will
hopefully work in our favor.
