Let Us Vote: Let's pass HB 70 out of the Senate

House Bill 70, the bill proposing a constitutional amendment to automatically restore voting rights to most former felons after they have served their time, has been reassigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee. This year, the bill passed out of the House again and was assigned to the Senate State and Local Government Committee. However, at the end of last week, the bill was reassigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee. This is a new committee for HB 70 and we need to make sure the Senate Judiciary committee knows it is time to Let Us Vote!
