Note, response back from Scotty Boman: several in attendance. The brass roots hearing had testimony but no votes, so we still have to wait for their next meeting which may be in the lame duck. There is a Senate version ready to go if it makes it through the house.
Highlights: Jon Coon and Mike Hoban were among the attendees and did all the testimony.
The plaque was there.
Lansing, MI – On Wednesday September 24th Wayne Schmidt, Chairman of the State House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, informed Brass Roots lobbyists (Kim Moore and Scotty Boman) that he would schedule a hearing for HB 5595 (A Bill to Allow Brass Roots to place their plaque on the capital grounds). A hearing is necessary to move a bill out of committee. This welcome news came on the eve of the 20th anniversary of the original “Brass Roots” gun rally. The hearing will be this Tuesday, September 30th at 10:30 AM in Room 521 of the House Office Building. Testimony on HB 5595 is at the end of the hearing agenda.
