Over 300 NEW Bills in One Day!

One of the first “contested” bills in the session so far!

HB 57: TOWING SIGNAGE REVISIONS, requirement to place signage that a person parking in a private area can be towed. Rules of lot must be clear, and consistent across the state. Goal to make “fewer people towed”. Some opposed to this based on “predatory towing”. Again, for those that are in “favor” they continue to reference the large discussion with “stakeholders”. However, not one single private individual has testified about this bill! WE THE PEOPLE are the stakeholders, not special interests.

- Passed with 40 Yea, and 26 Nay, with 9 not voting.

We also had 288 NEW bills released! Now, these are coming out because the legislators had to bring all “secret” bills (or bills they are working on, and may not want or be prepared for the attention the bill may have created a few weeks ago). Link (use quickly where it will be gone in a few days!):
