    This post will serve to maintain a running list of Knife Rights' legislative efforts this year. It will provide links to specific bills in process with "CALL/WRITE TODAY" indicating that action is currently required to support or oppose the bill. All information required to do this will be in the linked article on the Knife Rights website.

    The date after the call to action will indicate the latest date that we have made a change requiring action. As a bill move through the process, it will take numerous instances of calling or writing to help move the bill forward or oppose the bill during committee hearings (often more than one) and floor votes, in both houses, then on to the Governor for signing. Your calls and emails make a difference!
