H3695 House Vote - Passed


From Bill Fuller

On Lobby Day 2020, ABATE members passed out our newsletters and strategically placed a press release in the front highlighting our issues for this legislative session. This timely move by our members has yielded results. Today H3695 (our high mileage bill) received its second-reading and vote. The vote was 117 for and 0 against!

Thanks to all that participate in getting the word out. You do make a difference.

Special Election - State Coordinator - 2020


We called for a special election at the November BOD meeting to fill the vacant office of the State Coordinator. As of this writing we only have one nominee. Nominations will close at the January BOD meeting. If you wish to run for this office or nominate someone, you need to contact Johnny.

The current nominee is Doug Lavere, he has written an article and it was placed in the December issue of the newsletter.

The Board of Directors will be voting for the new State Coordinator at the March BOD meeting. All Chapters need to cast their votes before the end of February, so your Area Coordinator will know which way to vote.
