UPDATE: SB867 “Campaign Bling” – Del. William Fralin in support

Delegate William Fralin in a phone call agreed that prohibiting campaign buttons, T-shirts, stickers at the polls is silly and causes undue hardship on poll workers. Looks like bipartisan support for this one.

Hearing Scheduled – This bill is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Privileges and Elections’s Campaigns and Elections subcommittee on 01/28/2009. It meets on Wednesday, 10:00 a.m., 3rd Floor West.
