The Senate passed Senate Bill 266 by a narrow margin of 20-19 today. This is the COPN omnibus bill which contains a number of COPN exemption for localities around the state.
The bill is now headed to the House of Delegates Health, Welfare and Institutions Committee and will go through the same process it just completed in the Senate! We still have a lot of work to do and hope you will continue to engage with your House of Delegate member in the coming days. We will be sending Action Alerts as the bill begins it’s journey through the House.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to email their Senator and ask for their support for this important measure.
