Great News on HF68

HF 68, the ABATE of Minnesota supported legislation that increases the penalty for careless driving resulting in death, passed the Minnesota House Public Safety Committee on Wednesday, January 26, and was referred to the Judiciary Policy and Finance Committee. On February 10th, the bill was heard and held over for inclusion in the Judiciary omnibus bill. This is a very positive development. Unless another chair insists on hearing this bill we will have no more hearings in the Minnesota House and when the Judiciary omnibus bill is assembled, this language should be included in the big bill. Action in the Minnesota Senate is expected soon. ABATE of Minnesota thanks all who have helped with this important legislation.
