1. JULY 2 – Hearing on House Bill 2
Capitol Extension- Room E2: 010 at 3:00 p.m. The hearing will end at midnight. This is a small room, but there will be overflow rooms where you can watch the hearing.
You must go through the main Capitol building to get to the Extension. Expect long lines to go through security. Take the elevator or stairs down to E2. If you have a Concealed Handgun License, you can go through security at the CHL line – it’s much shorter. You do not have to be carrying – just show your license.
Get to the Capitol by 11 a.m. and then register in support of the bill at electronic stations in the Capitol Extension halls.

We the People should endeavor to be a virtuous people. Virtue implies the possession or manifestation of moral excellence. This moral excellence governs our values concerning the sanctity of life from conception to end. Honesty, trustworthiness, integrity, charity, sacrifice, industriousness, courage and reverence for God and country are all founding and God given qualities that comprise our virtue. As a People we endeavor to elect and appoint those officials that exemplify these virtues.
" Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." -- John Adams October 11, 1798
“ I thank God that I have lived to see my country independent and free. She may long enjoy her independence and freedom if she will. It depends on her virtue.” – Samuel Adams
