MARION, Ind.– A bill that would allow yours truly to finally obtain her first driver’s license after nearly two decades passed the Friends Legislature in a 10-3 vote Saturday (20 January).
The bill will officially become policy as of July 4, 2018 at the latest. What this means is that I, Ava Zinn would be able to finally have a bit more freedom known as obtaining my first vehicle and becoming one of the last out of 133 (three have since died) Mississinewa High School Class of 2001 alumni leaving Ryan Acord and James Hatton as the only remaining alumni to have dubious honor.
After passing in the Friends Legislature, the bill moved to the full Family on Monday where it passed in a 12-0 vote. The bill is expected to be signed by Ava Zinn (yours truly) and will become a new rule July 4, 2018 or until Ava Zinn officially has her driver’s license—whichever comes first.
Karly Jameson, BFF#1 issued this statement:
“I applaud the Family of Ava Zinn for successfully passing Family Bill 1, a landmark piece of legislation that is signed into law that will finally allow Ava Zinn to take the steps necessary to get her driver’s license for the first time in her life. This is an important milestone that every 16 year old has and we are thrilled that after nearly 20 years of roadblocks and setbacks, we knew the timing was right. I know Alec, Justin, Kayla, Ashley, Veronica, Karly, Telissa, Elaine, Wendy, Mona, Dara, many of Ava’s Friends are ecstatic about this new development just as much as I am eager to continue working directly with legislators to make sure that this 19-year setback and roadblock is ultimately repealed and allow Ava to begin a long overdue healing as she has overcome so much.”
While efforts have been ongoing with the Ava Zinn acquiring a vehicle since 2013, a psychological examination result revealed that yours truly is still not cleared to hold down even part-time employment or even take steps to finally closing the IWU Cold Case.
