UPDATE— On my original post a few days ago (see below) regarding HB180 has now passed in the House Public Safety Committee…but is NOT GA Law…yet. Here is the road it must travel before becoming law:
- HB 180 now goes to Rules Committee: If passed, then HB180 goes to the full House floor for a vote. If passes, then…
- If HB180 passed in the full House, then it goes to the Senate for debate. If it passes debate, then…
- HB180 goes to the full Senate floor for a vote. If it passes full Senate floor, then…
- HB180 goes to the Governor for signature. HB180 ONLY becomes law after the Governor signed the bill into GA Law, taking affect approximately June/July timeframe.
Therefore, the battle has a long way to go…so keep the pressure up on your elected officials. Stay tuned here as we bring you a list of officials you need to contact at specific times, especially when this transfers to the Senate. Let’s join forces and make this a reality, in honor of Tony Serrano.
See ya on the road…
Please note that the House Public Safety Committee will meet on Wednesday, March 2 at 3:00pm for a hearing on HB 180, the Three Foot Safe Passing bill. Emails & calls to the Public Safety committee members are in order!
