Success for Team PEO!
The PEO official position is that we are in support of SB297 as written by OSBEELS only.
Work session took place yesterday (2/25) where PEO letter was submitted as testimony.
All of the testimony was aligned with No on amendment #1 & #2 and Yes on SB297 with Amendment #3.
The Committee voted to pass the bill with ONLY amendment #3 to the Senate floor.
Thank you - Michael Hardy, Matt Cash, Tamara Johnson, David Bassett for your work on this bill. Michael Hardy noted "Now we just need to continue monitoring the Bill as it progresses through the legislative process to make sure nobody else tries to tack anything else on to it. Then after that, we need to participate in OSBEELS' rulemaking process that implements the bill."
