Legislature 2008 - Day 5

Deadline: Today was the cutoff date for introduction of bills.

Session: Rep. Robert Herkes gave the invocation. House bills no. 2851 to 3217 were introduced and passed first reading. The House will be in recess onThursday, January 24th, and will reconvene at 12 noon on Friday, January 25th.

Online Testimony: Have you tried viewing some of the online testimony? A noteworthy one to review is from Deona Ryan, testifying in support for HB2034. The bill makes it a violation to the state traffic code to leave a child unattended in a motor vehicle. Deona Ryan is the mother of 1-yr-old Aslyn Ryan, who died from hyperthermia in February 2004 after being left by the sitter in a hot car. Read all the testimony for the bill here. It passed out of committee unamended.

I dunno if you folks have any influence in these matters, but perhaps you can pass this post along to those who are running the online testimony show.
