At the request of the bills sponsor ag committe was cancelled and the bill was rolled to a later date. The pressure we've applied is working. Every office I was in today was inundated by opposition calls and emails. Zero calls and emails in support. WAY TO GO!!!!!

Good deal, I have sent NUMEROUS emails as many others here has done as well. Keep up the great work folks and hopefully we can dodge yet another of Nicely's bullets. Thanks for the update Chris.

Why postponed and not thrown out completely?

It was postponed because the bills sponsor, Rep. Niceley, who is also the chairman of the Ag Committee knew that he didn't have enough votes to carry the bill. It is his priveledge as the chairman to postpone the vote in order to save face and/or try to garner some support and/or hope that the opposition dies down. It will have to come to a vote or be withdrawn by the sponsot in order for it to be killed.

This is a great first step. The TnDeer community was very instrumental in turning enough votes to stall the bills momentum. Congratulations and thanks to all. We don't know yet what the next steps are, but we will likely need to keep the heat dialed up.

If he had let it run and it had been voted down, he would not be able to bring it up again this year. As it stands now, he can stump for more votes and bring it up again later.
