SIX


Six brave Republicans had the good sense to jump off the GOP's sinking ship

Six Republicans- yes, only SIX of them- crossed party lines to vote against Speaker Milburn’s HB 161 (repealing medical marijuana). The bill passed the house with a final vote tally of 63-37 and is now headed for appropriations.

We’ve all done a lot of criticizing this week.  We’ve sent lots of desperate emails, we’ve called countless times and many of us have been in Helena participating in the legislative process.  We’ve been disappointed over and over and although the bill still passed the house, there is a ray of hope in Sen Dave Lewis’s SB 154 which is a hybrid of his original bill, one by Diane Sands, and the MMGA legislator’s packet.   Please take a moment to thank the brave R’s listed below, their courage is appreciated.

UPDATE: We’ve heard these 6 republicans are now under tremendous pressure to change their final votes.  Please let them know we appreciate their courage and that we won’t forget it.
