HB 1049 - Please call TODAY

Friends -the Rules Committee meeting has been pushed to tomorrow, Thursday, 2pm. We have one more day to continue calls & emails! Our lobbyist says KEEP THE HEAT ON!! We are still not on the Rules agenda - HB1049 will die if we do not make it on the Rules agenda this week.  If you have not contacted members of the Rules Committee please do so ASAP.

ACTION NEEDED IMMEDIATELY:  Email/Call members of the RULES Committee asking for SUPPORT of HB1049 (See members & contact information listed below)
The message should be brief-add a personal note on why this is important to you.
Subject: Support HB1049
Message:  With strong bi-partisan support, please move HB 1049 to the Rules Committee agenda. Support  HB1049 this year because it provides our county with an economic development tool kit that will not only stabilize the cultural industry but will support a range of economic development initiatives so desperately needed in our own community.
