Thank you! What will the next steps will be? Is this reading the time that it can pass or be thrown out? If it passes the House does it then go to the Senate or does it move on to the Governor?

Thanks Holdinitdown!!! He has been in for 20 years already and we have lost a lot of time.  We were together prior to him going in and I just could not do that 23 years with him.  We were both very young (I was 17 and He was 19) and I knew I had my whole life to live.  In the meantime, I got married, had kids and got divorced.  I guess things have gone full circle and now, we are ready to start our lives together.  Im trying to be patient but my anxiety gets the best of me. 

I really do appreciate this group for the knowledge and support.   :wc6:

hildinitdown to my understanding from the way it was explain to me that after and if the House passes this it then goes to the Senate. When and if the Senate passes this it moves on to the Governor. It still has a long ways to go before it can be a law. I'm afraid that by the time this will be past if it does my husband will be out. But I do hope it does past to help others like my husband.

If he has got 3 years left that is unlikely the last one passed in just a few month. Don't get your hopes up but keep your prayers working it is possible for it.to help him. It does have a way to go but those steps do not take years chances are anything that is gonna get passed they are trying to get set for next year.

This bill is up for next year, did I read that right? Also as far as writing representatives, is there specific ones we should contact? We have a long way to go but any time off would be nice.

Does anyone know if this is like a modified version of HB6622 of last year? It sounds similar...

Sorry I have another question: What is the difference between this HB2515 and SB2073? :wc13: I apologize if that's a dumb question but I don't live in the US so I'm not at all familiar with the legislation process over there... Thanks for any help with this!

This bill didn't make it out of session which ended 5/31/2017. 



If a bill doesn’t make it all the way through this process before the end of session, that bill dies and must begin the process anew the next year.

What a bummer, this one might have made a huge difference for us. So are they both dead, HB 2515 and SB2073?
I wonder why the bill was filed this late, in February, when session already ends at the end of May? Does that indicate that they're not really too passionate about it? Who can we contact to try to get it refiled ASAP? The senator who initially filed SB2073? Or a representative? Me living overseas, I guess they wouldn't really listen to me but I'd give it a shot anyway...

Any bill that didn't make it out of the current session is considered dead.  End of sessions was May 31st.  Maybe they will be brought back up in the fall, have to wait and see.  It will have to start through the process again.

All bills that did not pass by May 31st are dead for now.. They have to be redone and brought forward in the new session, if then.
