Yippee! SB-102 Passes House Judiciary CommitteePosted: March 22, 2012
I went down to Denver today to testify in favor of repealing criminal libel again, this time in front of the House committee. Along with me, the ACLU, Colorado Press Association, Colorado Bar Association, and the Attorney General’s Office all testified in favor of the bill. The committee voted unanimously to forward it to the full House with a positive recommendation.
I may be a little early in celebrating, but it seems that this thing is sliding right through the process on rails. 8 years in court and all it takes a wacky conservative senator from out on the plains to push a criminal libel repeal through the legislature in record time. Who knew?
