COVID-19 has effected us all, and we understand that full effect of this shutdown is not yet known.

Earlier this week, Secretary-Treasurer Sanden along with our election committee verified and counted the ballots for the Constitution and By-Laws this Local will be operating under going forward. I am pleased to inform the membership that the Constitution has been accepted (95% voted approve), and additionally the new check-off dues structure was passed (91% voted approve). The copy of the constitution that was originally mailed out to everyone can now be for official reference.

**UPDATE**

The PRO Act has passed the house of representatives with overwhelming support. Thank you to everyone that did their part and made their voice heard.
