We don’t know when we will get a favorable reading out of this committee to move the bill into the House. It could be days, weeks, or months. But we know that your emailing the committee members will help move the bill along.
Thanks again for your ongoing support of the bill, and don’t forget to spread the word to coworkers, friends, and family to build even more momentum.
