The bill was rolled into another bill, HB2463, which looks to me like it's dead. (They haven't made it official, but "passed by indefinitely" seems pretty dead to me.) Richmond Sunlight doesn't have any capacity to deal with the notion of a bill that's defeated, but that is considered to be rolled into another bill. That's something that I hope to remedy soon enough.
