H. 3757 Passes Unanimously in South Carolina House of Representatives, on to the Senate!

April 21, 2012

 

Hello Advocates !  Still riding the wave of the uanimous vote on Thursday?  One of our advocates sent a message this morning about seeing a WIS TV report yesterday, and not just once but at least twice. It’s a good report, and mentions how now passage of H.3757 rests on the Senate’s shoulders.  H.3757 has moved to the Senate, and is being linked with its twin bill S.1135.

The Senate Judiciary Subcommittee will hold a hearing on S.1135 on Thursday, April 26, at 9:00 AM, in Gressette Room 209. Keep a watch on the Senate calendar and meetings, on www.scstatehouse.gov , to make sure that this meeting is still scheduled.

Rep. Nelson Hardwick

Be at the hearing if you can. Whether you can be there or not, pull out all stops. Send an email or letter or tweet or text or phone call, to the Judiciary Subcommittee and the Judiciary Committee members, to ask them if they will support this bill.  Thank the sponsors of S.1135 .  Send a big thank you note to Rep. Hardwick, and Rep. Bruce Bannister. He presented the bill, and really hit the points right on. My thanks goes out to you all over the past months.  Four years ago, Rep Hardwick was alone among his peers, and we were too. We got the word out. Our legislators heard.

I wish the news coverage had mentioned how much you, the citizens of this state, are behind this bill, and how you through all your initiatives have raised this importance of this bill in the eyes and minds of our legislators, and how you eased Rep. Nelson Hardwick’s hard-won fight to make sure this bill kept gaining solid support among his peers. We can never, never, never ! underestimate the power of citizens politics.

Now, onward to the Senate!
