8. I agree....

These hearings are for show. Law says they need them but as evidenced by last week-shutting down the hearing early and immediately taking a vote--they had no notion of listening.

17. "We have over 350 private sector businesses from all over the state saying, 'please, we don't want

more government intrusion, make this bill go away.'"

I wish I was near by, but hopefully these companies will send their spokespeople…

21. 25 in favor; 1,751 people against.--from the Senate last week....

Most ARE against--RTW. Suspect the assembly bill today will be similar


This was a tweet from last week Senate hearing--those who testified (remember Nass shut it down early so there would have been more)
