Update on Matt’s Law

Please follow link here.

Message from activist Debbie Smith, mother of Matt Carrington (cut slightly for space):

Hi Everyone
The next hearing date, with the Judiciary Committee, has been changed to the 25th.  Because everyone did such a fabulous job showing their support (pats on the back to you all) I have been told that EVERYONE does not have to show up this time.  Please come if you want to because a show of support is always nice. 
But the most important showing will be in June when it goes to the Assembly for the first time.  The bill will start all over then and we will be doing the same thing we did this time.  We will have a Matt Day the day before and meet with all the Committee Members of Public Safety and Judiciary then we will want ALL the Supporters to come in their RED so the Assembly will know as the Senate knows just how important this bill is.

Debbie, MMTrack the bill here: http://www.aroundthecapitol.com/Bills/SB_1454
This moderator supports the bill’s passage.
