Subject: HB2664 Arizona Sentencing Commission
Date: Tue, 8 Mar 2011 17:22:30 -0700
To all our friends who are interested in seeing the Sentencing Commission bill, HB2664, move forward:
We still have not seen this bill appear on the Rules agenda, and it cannot move forward through the House until it has gone through the House Rules Committee. Deadlines are fast approaching where both the House and the Senate have to be FINISHED hearing bills from the other chamber. The last week of hearing bills for both chambers is the week of March 21 - two weeks away.
HB2664 has not come out of Rules in the House; when it comes out of House Rules, it still has to to be caucused and then calendared for Committee of the Whole and Third Read before it can even go over to the Senate. This bill is way behind schedule to get over to the Senate because it has not come out of Rules yet. In fact, it has not even been set on the Rules Agenda.
As mentioned in previous emails, the committee chairman has complete control over which bills will be heard in committee. We would encourage you to email the House Rules Committee chairman to let him know that you support this bill, why it is important, and why it is urgent that this bill appear on the Rules agenda so that it has a chance to move through the House and get over to the Senate next week.
The House Rules Chairman is Jerry Weiers, email@example.com
Thank you for your support.
