A group of 6th grade ELP students met with Rep. Dunnigan to share their thoughts on 10-digit dialing. After touring the Capitol and learning a little bit about the legislative process, they presented their ideas at the beginning of a meeting regarding HB 215 – Area Code Assignment. It was great to see these students getting involved, and appreciate them supporting the bill.

HB 215 addressed the new area code by implementing a geographic split rather than the proposed overlay. Although the geopgrahic split recieved overwhelming support from constituents, there was never enough support from legislators to get the bill through committee.
