SB 5224 - On Hold Until 2022 Legislative Session

Condensed Overview:
After meeting with Senator Van De Wege, it is clear that we have a better chance at passing the bill by holding it in committee until the 2022 legislative session next year. This provides an opportunity to meet with key stakeholders and build consensus with potential opposition.

Between now and December 2021, the LSAW Monument Preservation Committee will meet with key stakeholders and develop strategic alliances, as necessary.

The LSAW Monument Preservation Committee would like to thank the LSAW members who took the time to attend our webinar and contact their representative(s). In order to be successful, we will need to build on our grassroots effort. Here is how you can help:

Attend LSAW Monument Preservation Committee informational meetings (like the webinar hosted last month) to stay up-to-date on the progress of the legislation.

Spread awareness through your Chapter

While there is still work to do, the good news is, we have formed a new relationship with Senator Van De Wege, who has demonstrated support and optimism for the passage of the bill next year. We are excited to see this process through and will count on you for your support! Stay tuned for more information!
