Bill Number: 
HB 278
Bill Purpose: 
Allows certified mail for certain notices

My Vote: 
Yes
Explanation: 

HB 278, introduced by Representative Allen Andrews (Republican - District 1) allows the Division of Employment Security to serve by certified mail, notice to an employer that they have failed to file certain reports required by law.  Current statue requires that they serve such notice in person, which is considerably more expensive for virtually no real-world benefit.  Allowing the use of certified mail instead seems like a good way to accomplish the same thing with less cost to the taxpayer.
