GOOD NEWS! HB506 Reported Out of CCT Committee! #Neededlegislation #rankedchoicevoting


FairVote Virginia
 

Hi Everyone,
 
Just a heads up, I called the Counties, Cities, and Towns Clerk to find out the outcome of this morning's subcommittee meeting, LIS has not yet been updated as of 11am on 1/23. The Clerk says that Delegate Hope's bill (co-sponsored by Delegate Hudson) flew through CCT with 8 yays and 0 nays, with no discussion of a fiscal impact that he could recall. 
 
It is going to full CCT tomorrow morning at 9am. This bill has taken a similar path before, but was stopped on the full house floor with objections that it had not gone through Privileges & Elections or Appropriations. 
 
Thank you everyone for your direct lobbying and calls!
 
Kind Regards,
 
Elizabeth Melson
