LEGISLATIVE ALERT

CONTACT YOUR MEMBER OF CONGRESS THIS WEEK ABOUT OUR HIGH PRIORITY LEGISLATION!

This entire week the U.S. Congress is back home in their states/districts to spend some time listening to constituents.  This is a great time to meet with your members of Congress to talk about ACT! for America and to ask for their support on four pieces of legislation that are already on our “High Priority List.”  Check to find out if your Senator or Representative will be holding a “Town Hall” meeting or appearing at any other community event this week and, if possible, attend!

Take a look at the first legislative proposals to make our “High Priority” list, below, to become familiar with the legislation.  Then, be sure to go to the Contact Congress link on our website: http://tool.donation-net.net/Act4America/ContactCongress.cfm?dn=1097&commID=54496712&ID=161165

There, click on the name of each piece of legislation to learn more about it.  If you are not able to meet with your elected official this week, you can follow the instructions on our website to send a letter to your Member of Congress, asking for support of the legislation.

It’s quick.  It’s easy. And it’s critical that your congressional elected officials hear from you.  Remember, they represent YOU in the U.S. Congress.

H.R. 140, The Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011
Sponsor: Rep. Steve King (R-IA)

H.R. 504, The First Responders Fighting Terrorism Protection Act of 2011
Sponsor: Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC)

H.R. 495 and S. 505, The See Something, Say Something Act of 2011
Sponsors: Rep. Peter King (R-NY); Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME)

H.R. 668, The Shield Act
Sponsor: Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ)

Over the course of the Congress, there will be additional legislation added to this list.  We will notify you when that happens and count on your help to move these pieces of legislation forward so they have the chance to become law.

REMEMBER, YOUR VOICE COUNTS!

IF EACH OF US DOES JUST A LITTLE, TOGETHER WE CAN ACCOMPLISH A LOT!
