Good Afternoon,

Our lobbying firm, Jenkins Hill Consulting are making headway on the HB735 issues. Senator Hooper, Senator Perry & State Representative Trabulsy have introduced bills. As we receive updates, we will let the membership know, but have a positive feeling we will have our issues with HB735 rectified.
