Arkansas HB1262, SB144, and SB343 would take important steps to stop the implementation of Obamacare in the state. HB1262 will need to pass successfully through the House Public Health, Welfare and Labor Committee while SB144 and SB343 will need to pass through the Senate Public Health, Welfare And Labor Committee before the bills can receive full votes in their respective chambers.
PLEASE TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS – It doesn’t matter where you live in the state, please follow all these steps to support HB1262, SB144 and SB343.
1. Call the Chair of the House Public Health, Welfare and Labor Committee, Kellie Linck. Be strong, but respectful. Urge him to support HB1262 and move the bill forward in his committee. If he does not commit to a YES vote, ask why.
2. Call the rest of the committee members. Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES on HB1262. Again, make sure to contact them with a phone call rather than an email.
