  1. Any news on today’s hearing????

    • I’m hearing very positive reports from those who attended and spoke, but I don’t believe any action was taken today – I think it was primarily a day for the public to present their positions.

      • Thank you so much!!! Sounds promising. Keeping all the hope, prayers and positivety going :) thanks for the update. Take care :)
