The Democracy for the People Act has been actively making progress over the last two weeks and today (April 13th) was voted out of the House. This means that the bill only has to pass the Senate before it goes to the Governor’s desk to be signed into law. We hope you are all taking a moment to celebrate this momentous occasion!
The Senate is now expected to vote on the policy in early May; we will update when a firm date has been officially announced.
What You Can Do:
Today - early May:
We Choose Us is asking organizations to send letters to the Senate in support of passing the Democracy for the People Act. MPHA's community can repurpose the letters we sent to committees earlier during the legislative session, that could be incredibly helpful in getting the final vote teed up.
