HB-1504, providing that life begins at conception. I believe that there is significant scientific evidence which supports the premise that a human life begins at conception. According to basic embryology and fetology, a biological human life exists from the moment of fertilization as the creation of a completed and unique strand of genetic material (DNA) is present. I believe that life is sacred, from conception to natural death, which this bill supported. Bill was killed ITL RC 214-95.
HB-492-FN-L, relative to the legalization and regulation of marijuana. Another dope bill, but thank God, this one was killed ITL RC 192-140. Motion to “Reconsider” vote no was made RC 146-181. It’s dead and can not come back up.
HB-1142-FN-A, relative to the road toll for alternative fuels. Over the past decade more vehicles are being powered by compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas and propane, but these vehicles are not currently paying the gas tax that regular vehicles do for road upkeep. It also requires alternative fuel dealers to be licensed by the Dept. of Safety to collect and remit the road toll. This is a equality tax for all vehicles. Bill passed OTP-A on RC 258-58.
