|Dana tells us that Tuesday, 12/17, the day of the hearings on doctor-prescribed suicide, is the feast of St Lazarus. How appropriate! |
There are two distinct avenues to keeping this bill from coming out of committee:
1) Anyone can testify or submit testimony. If you have not already asked Eva to register you on Monday or submitted written testimony, please do that right now, firstname.lastname@example.org or press "reply"
2) Constituents (only) must call legislators (list below) on Monday to say that H-1998 is dangerous and poor public policy**. Tell your legislator not to report out H -1998. When you call, be sure the person taking the message knows you are a constituent and gets your address. If the aide tries to assure you that your member is opposed to H - 1998, explain that you concern is that it not be voted out of committee.
