Although originally scheduled to be heard on April 28, Senator Nielsen chose NOT to bring his amended anti AB1213 bill back to the Senate Committee on Natural Resources and Water. This was presumably due to his realization that he lacked the votes to get the bill passed out of the committee. Consequently, the bill was not heard on April 28. The April 28 hearing was the last opportunity for SB457 to pass out of Committee, a necessary prerequisite for the bill to continue moving through the legislature. We’ll continue to be on the alert for any detrimental legislation that may be introduced, but, at this time we’re very happy to be focusing on preparations for the upcoming CFGC meeting at Mammoth Lakes this June. Thanks to all who spoke out against SB457.
