Dear Eagles and Friends:
There are two important bill hearings tomorrow, Wednesday March 29.
At 8:30 AM, the Senate Judiciary committee is hearing HB272, the poker room bill. We oppose this bill and any other attempts to increase gambling in Alaska. Please let members of this committee know we want them to vote NO on HB272. The members of the Senate Judiciary are:
Senator Ralph Seekins 800 336 7383 Sen_Ralph_Seekins@legis.state.ak.us
Senator Charlie Huggins 800 862 3878 Sen_Charlie_Huggins@legis.state.ak.us

At 1:00 PM tomorrow House Judiciary will meet. Of course we would like them to take up SB20, the Laci and Connor bill. It is not on the schedule though. HJR32, the same-sex marriage benefits constitutional amendment is. We fully support this bill. It is vital for the protection of marriage in our state that this amendment pass to proclaim the rights, benefits and privileges of marriage as being reserved only for married couples.
