Hearing on Tennessee Bottle Bill will be April 19

The latest on the proposed Tennessee Bottle Bill.

On Wednesday, April 19, from 9 to 10 am in House Hearing Room 30, the 2006 bottle bill will be the subject of a one-hour hearing before the Local Government Subcommittee of the House State and Local Government Committee. Rep. Russell Johnson will have 20 minutes to make the case for a bottle bill; the opposition will have 20 minutes to explain why they think a bottle bill will be a bad idea; and the legislators will have 20 minutes to ask questions.

Marge Davis, executive director of the Tennessee Bottle Bill Project, is looking for supporters of the bottle bill to come out to the Hearing to show support for this legislation. Check out the Tennessee Bottle Bill Project website for more information.

Dr. Davis believes that if the legislation can make it out of this committee it has a good chance of passing.

Dr. Davis has emailed me with updated information regarding the April 19 S&L Local Subcommitee hearing on HB3350:

1) The scheduled time for the subcommitttee meeting has been pushed back to 8:30 a.m. CST, and;

2) The length of the subcommittee meeting time has been cut from one hour to one-half hour.

My take: Get it? If you were planning to drive in to Nashville to attend this meeting without have prior been informed of the meeting changes by Dr. Davis, you would have completely missed the S&L Local Subcommittee meeting...

What was the rationale for changing the meeting time?
