House State Affairs is getting in gear on the Hamiel-Turbak Berry Blog Control Acts. HB 1277 and 1278 are on the committee agenda for first thing Monday morning, February 22, at 7:45 a.m. in room 414 of the State Capitol.
I have to teach here in Madison at 10 a.m., so I'm unable to make the road trip. But I have contacted bill sponsors Rep. Hamiel and Sen. Turbak Berry directly, as well as a number of House State Affairs reps. Bloggers, this weekend is the time to catch up with contacting the rest of the committee and telling them these bills do no good and much harm. If your legislators need further explanation, send them this list of readings (and more recent text from me here).
Contact your legislators, and let's see these bad bills voted down!
