Senate to Consider House Amendment to H.308 (Racial Justice) – Governor to Consider Next

Update:  There is a good chance that this vote could happen as early as Monday (May 1st).

Tuesday, the Senate will consider a proposal to concur with the House amendment to the Senate amendment to H.308. We support this proposal!  Thanks again to the The President Pro Tempore, Senator Ashe, the Senate Majority Leader, Senator Balint, Judiciary Chair, Senator Sears and bill sponsors Senators Pollina, Brooks, Ingram and White for stepping up and going beyond the call to get this done.
