Simmons Member firstname.lastname@example.org Angela Turner-Ford Member email@example.com I have written the committee members to ask that the bill be passed out of committee for a vote. The bill will die on February 27th if not brought up by the chairman. Here is my email to each of the committee members: Dear I am writing to ask for your support to pass House Bill 1083 out of committee. While HB 1083 seems to have become controversial since its passage by the House 80-29, HB 1083 is important and needed. Certain public officials have brazenly broken or ignored the laws of this State for several years. We cannot, as an organized and orderly society, tolerate anyone - much less a sworn public officer - breaking the very laws s/he has pledged to uphold. HB 1083 puts a mechanism in place to allow for enforcement of the existing laws. HB 1083 does not change the law as opponents of the bill falsely claim. If those opposing HB 1083 do not like the laws then they need to change them, not remove the average citizen's ability to ensure the law is followed. Please pass this bill out of committee for a vote.
