Group Home Bill Sent Back to Committee

February 03, 2017

The Group Home bill introduced by Senator Norment which would have limited where homes could be sited and require notification of the locality and delays in licensing has been “recommitted” to committee.  This is relatively rare and as all measures must be passed by the body of origin by Tuesday (bills which originate in the House, must have passed the House; bills which originate in the Senate, must have passed the Senate) and no meetings of this committee are scheduled, it may be safe to assume that this bill is not going to pass! There are many ways for a measure to disappear – this is one of them.  And this is a tribute to the advocacy of many!
