Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but despite having been scheduled for a work session today, SB 1007 did not get passed out of the Senate Environment & Natural Resources Committee. This means that Sen. Arnie Roblan was not convinced to vote for it, which should be a surprise to no one.

So that means we ended up this year with committee hearings in both chambers, which is a good accomplishment for a bill’s first year out in the world. We will come back next year and try again. All the good work we did this year will be put to use – never fear.
