kyle N., tracking this bill in Photosynthesis, notes:

Aaaarrrrggggh, if only I had known about you guys before HB 1250 passed the senate on March 1! I found mention of it in an old copy of the Roanoke Times that I scavenged from the Grayson County Library to use for fire starter (yes, we switched to burning wood to save money). Thank you for this good work. Kyle Noble, Independence, VA
