Thanks to your personal and impassioned phone calls and emails, the Judiciary Committee did not act on the Bathroom Bill before the Legislature went on its extended summer recess. This is great news, especially in light of the fact that our opponents were actively pressuring House Speaker DeLeo and his colleagues to force the bill out of Committee before the break.
However, the fight to once again defeat the Bathroom Bill is far from over. The Legislature will return after Labor Day, and our opponents have pledged to turn up the heat on certain legislators, including Judiciary Committee Chairman Eugene O’Flaherty, to get the bill before the full House and Senate.
Though the halls of the Statehouse are virtually empty right now, our work to educate legislators is constant. We were successful in July because of the radio ads that we were able to run encouraging people to contact their legislators. We are going to need similar ads this fall and beyond.

Together we can make sure that legislators continue to put the safety, privacy and modesty of all citizens ahead of the radical agenda of one special interest group.
