5 bills, 3 days to go

Here's a 2014 video from House Republicans about the ABLE Act, which was signed into law this January after a massive bipartisan effort:

This federal law enables states to implement ABLE accounts, but each state has to act.  Senator Weiler's SB292 would do that, but it's coming down to the wire.  It was passed by the Utah Senate and was sent to the House last night.  The problem is that there are a LOT of bills this session and only three days until the session ends.

We've been talking about 4 other bills for this session.  As of Monday night, all of those bills are in the chamber they need to reach to pass.  The Senate bills are now in the House, and vice versa.

You can help your legislators know what's important to you, their constituent, by e-mailing or calling them right away.  The contact info can be found here.

Today (Tuesday), legislators are in committees all day.  They'll be back in session tonight at 5:00 and will be working hard through Thursday.
