Gerbera writes:

This bill is listed as failed, but it's all over the news. Does "left in appropriations" mean it could still be alive?

There was an article in The Washington Post about it yesterday and Rep. Hugo has been on the news in different markets to talk about it.

Alison Hymes writes:

Left in any Committee means the bill has failed. So no, the bill is not still alive.

Waldo Jaquith writes:

My understanding is that this bill lives on not as a bill, but as a budget amendment. Unfortunately, Richmond Sunlight can't track budget amendments.
