Floor Hearings for Thursday, Legislative Day 49

by jhwygirl

SB425, which The Editor at the Button Valley Bugle calls “Walleye Welfare” sees its second reading on the floor of the Senate tomorrow, Thursday, at 1 p.m. The Editor put together another thought on it – detailing the shenanigans of the fiscal note drawn up for the bill, in this post, titled Quick Note. Now, we’ve blogged that one here, too – but Button Valley Bugle’s done it much better. If you care about hatcheries across the state, and you don’t want to see the cost of your fishing license go up, contact your senators before 1 p.m. and tell them NO to walleye welfare.

ALSO on the Senate Floor, another bill that hasn’t gotten a whole lot of love – none, frankly – is Sen. Jim Schockley’s SB497, which protects protesters from people that are entering health care clinics. That post had some lively discussion – and so did this one. Be sure to contact your senators on this one, too – for some reason that we’ve yet to figure out here at 4&20, this one sailed through committee 12-0.

For another take on Schockley’s bill, check out Montana’s newest female blogger, 42nd Wave Feminist with her post, titled “We’re in the Friday Feminist Fuck You”.

…and while you’re at it, don’t forget to update your blogroll and your favorites.

Those are the two big ones as I see it, people. Here is Thursday’s entire House floor schedule, and the entire Senate floor schedule.

Here is an easy links-filled page that will help you find who your senator(s) are (me? I’ll contact all of Missoula’s), and help you find out how to contact them also. Me? I like the interactive map.
