HJ0008 Committee Hearing is Scheduled
To read about the Senate version, SJ008, click here
The House Corporations, Elections and Local Government Committee has posted its agenda for its meetings on Tuesday. Our proposed resolution, HJ0008 “Free and Fair Elections,” is listed for hearing at the committee meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 29 at 8:00 a.m.
However, the agenda for the 8:00 a.m. meeting also includes several other bills (listed ahead of ours) that are likely to generate much discussion and debate too: HB0106 “Party affiliation changes” and HB0192 “Voter fraud prevention”. We think therefore there is a pretty good chance that HJ0008 may have to be held over until the noon meeting of the committee. If you are in Cheyenne on Tuesday, it would be good to have a *respectful* group of supporters on hand to show support for our bill; but understand that the hearing room may be full of people wanting to be heard on those other measures too.
