UPDATE (2-10-20): 

Thank you for your calls and emails on HB 4043! You  truly made a difference, as the bill was defeated on an 11-11 roll call vote this afternoon in the House Banking and Insurance Committee. But, we must remain vigilant... as the bill could be resurrected with a motion to reconsider at the next committee meeting. Please reach out to thank those delegates who voted “no” (all the Democrats plus Del. Barnhart) and ask them to NOT reconsider the bill in the future.
