Here are the ways you can get your letter in the right hands (you can pick an option or do all three!)

(1) Submit an online comment/letter to the committee by 12pm on Sunday, Feb. 12th.   ( If you are not able to get it done by this time, please still submit the letter by COB on Monday, as the Committee will receive these letters before they take a vote in Executive Action. 

(2) Email or call senators on the Committee by 8am on Monday, Feb. 13th (Contact info below, please CC

(2) Email your letter to Rebecca ( by 1:30pm on Monday, Feb 13th. Rebecca will then print and bring the letter to the committee hearing.
