    ACTION NEEDED!!!
    START CALLS/FAXES ON MONDAY THE 9TH!!

    The LTC bill SB1976, sponsored by Senators Jones and Rutherford, is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Public Health committee on Tues, March 10 at 1:00 PM. This is the Senate bill that mirrors HB462. The Public Health committee is a very hostile committee for this bill, and it is not expected to pass. In spite of that, we would like to inundate every one of those committee members with phone calls and faxes beginning on Monday, the 9th and continuing to Noon on Tuesday the 10th. We must show these committee members that we are serious about LTC, we are aware of the bills as they pass through the legislature and that we will support them, regardless of their perceived chances.

    Please call both their Springfield and district offices. If there is a fax number available, fax a short note in support of SB1976. Make your calls and faxes cordial, concise, and to the point. The people that answer the phone are just doing their job, and may or may not have an opinion on the bill, so don't go into detail about your support unless asked. You may be asked to supply your name, address and a phone number if you'd like a call back.

    For those of you new to this process (I was scared to death the first time I called!) this might serve as an example for you:

    "Hello, I'm JohnPublic of Anywhere, IL. I'm calling this morning to ask Senator Delgado to support Senate Bill 1976 when it comes before the Public Health Committee. "

    Yes, call them all, even though you're not in their district. Phone calls do count, regardless of where they come from. The members of the committee are listed below with their office numbers and fax numbers when available.

    Fire up those phones!!!

    This will be a hard bill to pass committee. Most members are from northeastern Illinois.

    Seems to be a rule violation. This should be in the firearms subcommittee.
