    I like it.

    But I thought the session was over?

    Oh no no... the first half of the session is over.

    The next half is next year. Bills introduced now are basically like a prefiled bill... except you have much longer than a month to gather support for/against it.

    I also do not know the rules in a special session... if they have to talk about nothing but the reason for the special session (budget) or if other committees can continue working on other bills.

    Next year as in 2008?

    Are they in a special session now?

    I'm under the impression that they can only work on the issue that caused the special session to be called, not other things.

    I like it too. 45 days. Free if not done by then. Temporary for a year if they are slow. Good bill.

    The text, in current form, says that the bill would become effective July 1 2007.

    I assume they have to amend the bill then? What is the history on this bill anyway?

    I would like to see the renewal fingerprint requirement be removed too, but it is a good start.

    How about changing it to WILL issue :twisted: Or MUST. Something more obvious.

    Good job GCO. I have a feeling we're going to be showing up en-masse on this one... not to mention an intense letter writing campaign? Is it too early to start hounding our reps? I'll have a new one next month and I want him to know me immediately :D

    How does one address their state senator and/or representative? Honorable? What's the appropriate salutation?

    Send this letter to my representative, my senator, or both?

    By their title.

    e.g.

    Rep. Bearden, (if you are being more formal use "Rep. Bearden:")

    Thanks for being a cool dude.

    Sincerely,
    Ramm Stein

    Awesome Ramm. I think we should send that letter to all the Senators and Representatives, substituting dude for dudette when appropriate... :lol:

    I have contacted my state Senator and Rep. Hopefully, <strike>they're ol' school Dems, and not the new Socialist Dems</strike> they're Democrats who support the Constitution, and not Socialists.
