The bill introduced by Rep. Welch, House Bill 1068 has passed unanimously out of committee and is headed for a full floor vote. While it won’t hit the floor for a vote for a bit, now is the time to start contacting your State Representatives to ask them to support this bill in its current form.

Right now, the bill will close access to the full database to everyone save law enforcement.
