Action Alert! HR 811 up for vote in House next week

Author 2591
Message Mark Crispin Miller
Friends,
Michelle Mulder, counsel to Rep. Rush Holt, has just informed supporters
of HR 811 that the bill will come up for a vote on the House floor next week.
This URL will take you to the 8/31/07 edition of "The Weekly Leader,"
Rep. Steny Hoyer's bulletin, which notes that HR 811 will probably appear
on next week's docket:

Although we have done much, over the last few months, to weaken the bill's
congressional support, there is of course a good chance that the members of
the House, just back from vacation, will have lost their focus, and so may
vote this toxic legislation into law.
Please call your representatives in Congress, starting Tuesday: Contacting the Congress


And here are some useful links, courtesy of Joan Brunwasser:
