Senate Deadline Approaches

The deadline to hear Nick's Law in the Senate Insurance Committee is Thursday, Feb 21st. After the deadline has passed, the current senate legislation of Nick's Law will be pulled from committee and introduced later this session.

The committee appears to be tied 5-5 along party lines. Senate rules state any legislation that is introduced into committee and does not advance, then the bill and associated language can not be introduced later as an amendment.

Get ready for Plan B!!

There are several options that Senator Gumm will be exploring in the near future. We are very optimistic that Nick's Law will continue in the Senate.

In the House, the deadline to hear legislation in the committee is March 6th.

Please check back with us as we will be updating this site as developments are posted.
