Decision Maker Response

Jul 2, 2012 — In 2008 I co-patroned SB714, which, as introduced, would have provided protection in situations such as this. There was opposition, particularly in the House, to the provisions of the bill. The version that passed was only a shadow of the original bill and did not provide protection for such a predicament. While this will certainly be an uphill battle, I remain committed to the cause and I will keep working to find a common sense solution to this problem.
