Senate • On Committee agenda– Judiciary, 02/20/12, 10:30 am, 110 Senate Office Building

The hearing will start at 10:30 am and at that time the Media Portal page will have a link to watch the Judiciary Hearing live from your computer. They could choose to take up this bill, but also could not- it is on agenda, but that does not always mean they will hear that day. Sometimes they bump it to another day’s agenda depending on what they feel like doing. Thanks for the info, we should definitely keep following and keep pressure on the Judicial committee in both House and Senate.
