Brief Update on Legislative Session

We want to provide you with a brief update on what is taking place in the legislative session. First, we need you to MOBILIZE people by talking to everyone you know about the importance of the domestic partnership bill. Please have them call their Senators and tell them to Support SB 183. This bill is still moving through the legislative process.

We are anticipating SB 183 will be heard after HB 2 is handled, which will most likely be later this week. We are on Day 23 of the legislative session and in the last few miles of the marathon. We are working diligently to get this bill passed and need you all to get involved. Again, we cannot provide you with the exact day or time of the Senate Finance Committee hearing, yet please be prepared to mobilize people and attend this hearing when we send out an ALERT.

We encourage you to forward the alert to everyone you know, post it on your facebook page, text the day and time to your acquaintances, and mobilize people to the Roundhouse.

We also need you to attend the Senate Rules Committee hearing when SJR 1 - Marriage Defined, CA is heard. We need to let legislators know that we oppose this joint resolution. We will also send you an alert when we have details of this hearing.

GET ACTIVE!!! Please write letters to the editor, call your neighbors to get them involved, and volunteer with EQNM. Contact Gino at 505-224-2766 or
