It has been an action oriented week at the legislature for SB 459! Thanks to PHASA allies continuing their hard work to educate our legislators and telling their compelling stories, SB 459 passed the assembly with amendment. The next step is to get a majority vote through the assembly floor session which is slated to happen May 1, 2015 beginning at 11:30am. Then it is off to the Governor to get signed into Nevada Revised Statute (if it passes the assembly floor session)!
What can you do now?
- The Health and Human Services Committee may be well informed on the bill now, however other assembly members may not be and they will be voting on it tomorrow 5/1/15. You can get letters and/or phone calls out to your assembly person or other assembly people not on the HHS committee asking them to vote in support of SB 459!
