Thanks KelleyM for heading this up, a friend of mine in Houston forwarded it to me a couple days ago. I have sent it out to all my friends and family. They tell me I should sell stuff and have heard me complain about the laws, so here is their chance to help! icon_smile.gif

Just saw this. I was #858. And I am forwarding this to all my friends.

Wonder how things are going at this point?

I have started a web site dedicated to this effort:


This is where I will be posting updates and news.

I have not heard back from Senator Ogden's office yet, although I didn't expect to yet. The Senate Finance Committee (of which he is the Chair) is meeting all this week and next. I feel I presented a well-thought-out-case to his aide. What I'm asking people to do now is FAX the Senator's office asking him to introduce thsi legislation. More details here:

I am going to start pestering Rep. Gattis today. icon_smile.gif

Call or write to YOUR Senator and Rep to make them aware of the need for this! Refer them to the web site. icon_smile.gif
