Dear Friends,

BILL ALERT: BILL TO RESTRICT/CLOSE CRISIS PREGNANCY RESOURCE CENTERS DIES IN HOUSE

Thanks to your collaborative grassroots efforts and involvement, I am pleased to announce that my House Republican colleagues and I were able to successfully  kill House Bill 1366, a measure which could have resulted in the closure of faith-based, pro-life pregnancy resource centers and medical clinics across our state. The measure did not pass from the House before today's 5 p.m. deadline, and a similar measure in the Senate failed to make it out of committee, so unless unforeseen circumstances arise, this legislation is essentially dead for the session.

This is a victory for the 4th Legislative District and for nonprofit, privately-funded pregnancy resource centers across our state that provide vital counseling services and maternity homes where young, pregnant girls have a place to stay and learn important life skills.

Thank you for your support in helping us to stop this very bad piece of legislation.

Please feel free to contact my office if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Matt Shea
