Is it me, or has it has been a really hot, long summer? The heat seems to make everything slow down. But we mustn't allow that to happen to our efforts for Alimony Reform. During this off session time we have focused on creating and setting up the membership website. That is basically all done now. We know that there may be a few glitches along the way, what with technology and human error. That's ok. No one is perfect. We will figure out whatever we have to and continue to move forward. Please be patient, like most worthwhile things, we are figuring this out as we go.
Currently, our time is being spent developing our strategies for the 2016 legislative session. Because the House of Representatives left 3 days early in our last session, our Bill didn't get a chance to be finalized to go our Governor's desk for signing. I do not believe that kind of behavior from our legislative leadership will happen again, so I have every expectation of getting our bill passed in both the House and Senate this upcoming session. I have also requested a meeting with Senator Lee so that we can discuss the issue of time sharing and whether it will be something that is of concern to our bill this upcoming session. We then have to figure out exactly who will be able to sponsor our bill as well. I'm hoping that our previous Sponsors will, once again, agree to sponsor our bill since they are so familiar with the issues at hand.
Our Legislative leaders have a tremendous amount to deal with this upcoming session. Besides the redistricting that recently was ordered upon them, there are many other political, social, and environmental issues that they need to address this upcoming session. That is why it is so important to work closely with our lobbyist and our legislator so that we can make certain that our bill is not only positioned to be heard, but addressed and ultimately voted upon.
There are always lots of moving parts in these things, but I'm positioned to deal with all of them from experience I've had over these last few years. Let's continue this journey together, and together we will change our lives and the lives of our children.
As always, I will update you on events as they occur. But like a good chess game, having the best strategy enables a winner to emerge.
