NOTE from Carla: Gmail is acting weird. Every time I send out an email about 30 will bounce back. So you might not be getting any thing from me. I will look into the problem. Mean while I do hope you will check this page and/or our facebook page. I will try to add update to keep you informed.

 

I went the House Committe on Thurday 1/14. I had to go through the meter detector and get my temp read. Other then that, no one ask if I had signed up to testify.  They do want to limit the number of people who do show up and you can not sit next anyone.

SENATE BILLS

Judiciary Committee   

SB3  and HB1020-  Nothing to do with us... BUT- CREATING A SENTENCE ENHANCEMENT FOR CERTAIN OFFENSES COMMITTED AGAINST A PERSON DUE TO THE PERSON'S ATTRIBUTES; AND TO REQUIRE AN ANNUAL REPORT CONCERNING THE COMMISSION OF HATE CRIMES IN ARKANSAS.   Quote " A person commits the offense of filing a false report if he or she files a report with any law enforcement agency or prosecuting attorney's  office of any alleged criminal wrongdoing on the part of another person knowing that the report is false."    How many registor citizen are now having to registor becasue of a false report?!!  and AR is so far behind on checking on rape kits that might free a registor citizen.  This part of the bill can't be change and has nothing really to do with us, I just thought it would be useful info.

Webmaster is going to make it where you can download it. but I am going to sent it to you by email, if you are on our mailinglist.  This will make it so much earier to send those email instead of copy and pasted each one.
