What Happens Next With Kilahs Law?

trachJeff Gerber gives a great explanation about what happens next for Kilahs Law:

Team Kilah, I wanted to take a moment to explain the process that will take place with” Kilahs Law” now that this Bill is so close to being introduced.

REP. Craig Horn will be introducing the Bill when The Legislature reconvenes on January 30TH. The Bill will then go to The Judiciary B Committee. The members of that committee are then responsible to focus on the details of the bill. From there, public hearings are held.

Decisions about the bill’s merits are then conferred and decided upon. I do not expect any problems with this Committee approving the Bill. After the Bill is released it will go to The NC House for a full floor vote. They take 3 readings (votes) to allow for any Amendments to be offered by House Representatives. If no Amendments are offered by any Representatives all 3 readings could potentially occur in one day. If the Bill passes the 3RD reading it will then be sent to The NC Senate where the same process takes place. If The Senate passes the Bill as introduced to them it then goes to The Governor for consideration. If any changes are approved in The Senate the Bill goes back to The NC House. Due to the incredible public support for “Kilahs Law” I am hopeful this process will go smoothly and the Governor receives this Bill in a Couple Months and signs into Law. Sometimes Bills become Law very fast and other times it can take some time. All we can do is Pray this process happens quickly as “Kilahs Law” will no doubt save lives.

When this bill is introduced by REP. Craig Horn there will be 4-5 Primary Sponsors (that is a huge honor) and quite a few co-Sponsors.

Last but not least I personally want to thank everyone for all your hard work and support in making this Law a reality. Together We Will Prevail. And the beautiful little Kilah Davenport is honored with A State Law introduced in her name.
