SB444 passes House Business and Labor Committee

March 7th, 2011
Team OHBA, led by Ted Hausotter and Sen. Prozanski, put in another stellar effort this morning and got SB 444 approved unanimously by the House Business and Labor Committee. This means the bill will be scheduled for a floor vote, possibly later this week or next week. We expect another landslide vote by the House, which will send the bill to Gov. Kitzhaber for his signature. The law will go into effect the moment the governor signs it. We donít know how soon that will happen, but we have asked the governorís office to hold a signing ceremony for the bill, and the OHBA team members hope to be there. Itís possible the governorís schedule wonít have room for the ceremony, in which case weíll ask him to sign it without a ceremony to ensure that competitions scheduled for April and May can go forward. Please tell anyone who hasnít done so already to e-mail their state representative and urge them to vote for the bill. Weíre almost there!
