State Representative Mooney & State Senator Hooper Meeting March 20, 2023

Posted on Mar 21 in Member Blog

Our lobbyist, Scott Barnhart and I met with State Representative Mooney & State Senator Hooper on March 20, 2023 at the State Capital regarding the unintended consequences of HB735 and the local county/municipal contractor licensing. It was a very productive meeting and there is a considerable amount of discussion and determination to rectify the unintended consequences. We reviewed two bills that are working towards committee, hopefully this week.

March 14th I sent out a blast requesting everyone to reach out to State Rep Sirois to encourage him to bring up the bill for markup and to move the bill to Committee. If you have not called or emailed yet, I encourage you to do so immediately.
