Your next step is to get as many people as possible to ask their legislators to support this bill!  It’s not that hard since many states provide a toll-free, intrastate telephone message center (during session) to take calls from citizens wishing to express an opinion on proposed legislation.


Tell your friends and supporters that contacting their legislators this way is:

·          Easy to do — Just dial a phone number.

·          Convenient — It takes less than 5 minutes, and the message centers are open at least 10 hours every week day.

·          Inexpensive — No long distance charges.
