House State Gov't and Tribal Relations Jan 31 @ 1:30pm
Possible Executive Session: Need to contact committee members or submit written comments to them by email.
1. HB 1333 - Establishing the domestic violent extremism commission. Why put anyone in charge of deciding who is speaking in "domestic terrorism" conversation. CON
2. HB 1174 - Improving access and removing barriers to jail-based voting. Speaks for itself. I wonder if we provide special treatment for folks in jail but not for folks who are disabled and are working for a living.
3. HB 1317 - Concerning grassroots lobbying disclosure. Citizens who send out information about legislation may eventually be included in this law application.
4. HB 1272 - Concerning publishing, formatting, and distribution of the state and local voters' pamphlets. Restricts freedom of speech in their voter pamphlet statements for campaign. Who decides what is "disinformation" or "misinformation" -- the County Auditor or someone who is appointed by the Auditor??

Contact the committee members and email them your comments.
HB 1443 - Updating the process for online voter registration by allowing voter applicants to provide the last four digits of social security number for authentication. It is very inexpensive to get social security numbers and then submit false voter registrations. Regular forms of ID would no longer be required for on-line registrations.
