Grey's SB 1720 died in the House last night. Today is the last day for the Senate to hear Grey's HB 1795. It has been on the Intent calendar since Saturday. If it is not heard by midnight tonight, it too will die. If it is heard, it will pick up 2 amendments, one to screen for HIV in newborns (actually a Senate Bill that died in the House) and the other to make sure it is financed. One it is heard and passed with the amendments it goes back to the House for final approval. The Senate can take up to 24 hours to get it back to the House. The House then has to lay it out for 6 hours before approving it. The House will have until Friday to approve it. If the House does not have time to approve it, it will die there.
Please contact Lt. Gov. Dewhurst and let him know you want HB 1795 - Greyson's Law to be heard today before the session ends. Because of the urgency, it would probably be best to call him. Below is his contact information:
