Hello All,


We did a great job on Friday.  The Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee did
vote in favor of the bill, so it will be going to the Senate floor very
soon.  However, our work is not finished.  Now we have to get the House
Judiciary Committee to vote in favor of the bill.  Please contact them today
April 4, or April 5. Here is the message to deliver:


Please conform HB876 to SB765. 


The reason for this request is to avoid 2 different versions of the bill.
If we get 2 different versions they will have a conference committee, and we
will probably get nothing.  The Senate bill is a good start to eliminating
the disability bias that we parents and caregivers face when issues come up
about their children.  


Here are the lists of people that you should call or email. Remember the
email address is  <mailto:firstname.lastname at house.state.md.us>
firstname.lastname at house.state.md.us 

Remember, the telephone prefix is either 410-841 plus the extension OR
301-858 plus the extension. 


Everyone should email or call the Chairmen of the House Judiciary Committee
Delegate Joseph Vallario, ext. 3488.

on us.
