I want to make you aware of 3 bills that I am concerned about. Your involvement can make a big difference. There is a great website called lifelibertyfreedom.com that will allow you to email all of the legislators of the House and let them know how you feel.
This bill will allow school board members to censure each other. This could be a tool used to ruin the reputation of a conservative or a liberal school board member. School board members should feel free to speak their mind and their concerns whether or not they are in the minority of the board. Please email the legislature and tell them to vote NO on HB2060. It will be voted on in the house tomorrow 2/14/13 at 1:30 pm.
HB2343 – Public Employees, compensation for union activity (link)
This bill prohibits taxpayer dollars to be used for union activity. If you believe union dues and not taxpayer dollars should fund union activities then please email the legislature and tell them to vote YES on HB2343. It will be heard in committee on 2/19/13.
This bill passed out of committee and will soon go to the House floor for a vote. This would allow town councils to draw boundaries around businesses and form a board that will tax the businesses. The revenue from the businesses will be used by the board for “economic development”. This bill is a dream come true for big business and the well connected to create taxing districts and then control the funds. If you don’t believe in business taxing districts then please email the legislature and tell them to vote NO on HB2456.
Small businesses and individuals have little to no voice at the Capitol. They can’t afford to hire a lobbyist to protect their interest. We need your help. Please pick the issues above that you feel are important and use lifelibertyfreedom.com to email every Republican legislator in the house to tell them how you feel. It will be Republicans that decide if these bills pass or not. Please do not attack any of the legislators sponsoring the bills but focus on the bill itself.
