The bill will most likely not get introduced in 2011 because we're too far into the session already and some additional research/meetings need to happen.
In addition to Delegate Love (who is actually one of my delegates), a representative from the Health committee (his name was Patrick) also sat in on the meeting. His committee is who the bill initially goes to to be discussed. What he said is that unless we can get the health department onboard we will never get this past the committee!
So, our next step is to meet with Fran, she's the . We are going to see what concerns they have an see if, there is any evidence we can provide to assuage their concerns. Hopefully, through dialogue we can come to an agreement that will win us the approval we need in order to present this to the Legislature for 2012!!!!
