PLEASE NOTE: Bills have not been introduced as yet and so we do not have a set of confirmed, final priorities.
What we do have is a list of bills that could be introduced in 2020 and at that same page, a link is offered telling you how each of our 2019 bills did.
As bills are pre-filed in the current session, bill numbers and descriptors will be revised as needed. Additional bills may be added after discussion with our allies, but we will try to keep the final MUST PASS list to no more than 15 bills so that we can effectively track them and coordinate advocacy. Last year, we wound up with 46 bills that were identified as MP or Priority. That was simply too many.
Please click here to review the criteria and the process we used to prioritize the bills. Chief among them were months of input from our allies and responses to an online survey of 29 bills that were either vetoed or never got out of the legislature in 2017 or 2018. Prioritizing bills has been very methodical and taken months to complete.
Click here to review our 2020 Preview. You will also find contact information for our Governor and Democratic leadership who will be deciding what is introduced. Now is a good time to let them know the bills you want to see introduced.
We expect a final list of MUST PASS bills will not be complete until February, as bills continue to be introduced up until Feb 14. However, that will not stop us from advocating for the bills above and sending you alerts when one of the bills is going to a committee for a hearing and vote.
