Legislative Update provided to us by Bruce Guter:
SCA 7, the proposed legislation that would lower the threshold for passing library initiatives from 67% to 55%, cleared its first hurdle. It passed the Senate Governance and Finance Committee last week.
The bill will now be referred to the Senate Elections and Constitutional Amendments Committee, where it can be taken up this year or early next because, as a proposed constitutional amendment, it is not subject to the same timeline as a standard bill. Once SCA 7 is officially assigned to this committee, there will be a new group of senators to whom we must write letters.
As soon as we have specific senators to write, we will post names and mailing addresses.
