Hello Social Work Day on the Hill University Contacts,


Social Work Day on the Hill is tomorrow and it wouldn’t have been possible without your help! Please know how much we appreciate your work to make the day a success.


As many of you know new information on  legislative issues and the schedule of legislative meetings change week to week.  The attached materials includes the Legislative Schedule and other materials we will be using tomorrow that have just been finalized.  As you review the calendar, please note that the House and Senate will not be meeting in full session at 8:30 a.m. as they often do on Wednesday mornings.  We anticipate this will result in more legislators potentially joining us for our opening Breakfast with Legislators from 8:00 – 8:50 a.m. (A list of those that have already sent an RSVP for the breakfast is attached, but others may come to the breakfast that haven’t responded.   We hope Universities that are in Nashville tomorrow morning will have persons present to greet and visit with their legislators.

Another note we wanted to make about tomorrow’s calendar is that the House of Representatives Judiciary Subcommittee has HB 2064 that exempts persons with SPMI from the death penalty on their schedule at 3:30 p.m.   We thought you would want to know about these two developments.


In addition to the Legislative Schedule the attached legislative visits packet includes:

·         Our schedule for the day with open times for meeting with legislators highlighted,

·         Tips for making legislative visits,

·         The handout designed for legislators with key talking points on social workers and about a key “social infrastructure” issue related to preventing funding cuts to essential community based mental health services,

·         The legislative schedule, and

·         A feedback form for persons to complete after their visits with legislators.


Note: An additional talking points handout on HB2064 will be available tomorrow.


Attendees will receive all the materials in the attached legislative visits packet on Wednesday, and copies have also been sent to attendees that registered online with an email address.   Please feel free to share any of this information that you would like with those attending from your school.


We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
