Observations - From Participant/Speaker Bella Robinson
Continuing Support for NH-House Bill 1614
Rachel West from Us Pros, Phoebe from All Women Count in Philly, and Bella Robinson from CoyoteRI all attended the committee hearings on House Bill 1614. CoyoteRI Press release supporting HB1614
This is a list of who supports the bill and who opposes it. We need all our allies to continue emailing the Committee members with letters in support of HB1614, especially the ones that oppose us.
Members who were present for most or all of Thursday, from left to right, to my best memory
Dick Marston, Republican. "This bill can't be supported by women because my wife would hate this bill." He's against us and there will be no changing
Robert "Renny" Cushing, Democrat. Probably with us, but has unanswered questions.
Robert Fesh, Republican. Probably against us, but he didn't say much.
John Burt. Republican Does not care what his majority leader says. Very libertarian, almost certainly with us. I will make sure.
Len DiSesa, Democrat. Former Chief of Police. He is probably against us, but is capable of changing his mind with a lot of work. He started out against the 911 immunity (good Samaritan) bill last year but eventually changed his mind.
