You will be pleased to know that the Women’s Suffrage 100th Anniversary Commemoration Commission bill was signed and chaptered into law on November 20th, 2015 in chapter 471.

As a member of the Democratic Legislative Women’s Caucus, it is our first priority to ensure that the Women’s Suffrage 100th Anniversary Commemoration Commission is properly funded so that they can organize exhibitions and events celebrating the centennial of women’s suffrage. Be assured that through these budget negotiations that I will continue to advocate on the Commission’s behalf.
