  • State Senate expected to act on H.245, SO-CALLED SMALL BREWER BILL


    ACTION NEEDED NOW!!!
    URGENT: Act TODAY !

    State Senate expected to act on H.245, SO-CALLED SMALL BREWER BILL THIS Thursday July 14

    Things Are Happening With House Bill 245:

    Our efforts to oppose House Bill 245 in the House of Representatives have been a success. H.245 was stopped at the committee level, thanks to your support and the support from all your fellow employees. Today, H.245 lies quietly the House of representatives.

    But the State Senate is not quiet. This Thursday, JULY 14 , the SENATE is expected to take up H.245 or some similar proposal as part of a bigger bill dealing with economic development. This attempt at action in the Senate is probably the last chance supporters of H.245 have to pass it this year .

    We need your help to launch a full-cour t press to defeat this last-gasp effort.

    Please email your STATE SENATOR NOW and ask them to please STOP H.245 and every amendment or proposal that is similar to H.245 and seeks to change the current distribution system.

    You can do this by using the link to the Voter Voice email messaging we all have used before.

     

    WE ALL MUST TAKE ACTION NOW! WE NEED EVERY EMPLOYEE TO TELL THEIR STATE SENATOR TODAY TO STOP

    H 245 and every amendment or proposal that is similar to H 245 and seeks to change the current distribution system.

    Even if you have emailed or written before, please do this again today. You can use the link below to ask your STATE SENATOR to “STOP H. 245. “
