Fellow Federationists:


            I want to thank you for your hard work in building the cosponsor
support for H.R. 734, the Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act.  Earlier this
week we eclipsed the 200 cosponsor total on this important legislation for
blind Americans.  While this is a great accomplishment, we are still having
trouble getting the chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce,
Congressman Henry Waxman, to take steps to move our bill in this session of


            I am now asking you to contact Chairman Waxman's office next
week, March 1-5, and urge him to hold hearings on H.R. 734.  


            This past week the chairman has held hearings related to the
Toyota recalls, and his office needs to know that the right of blind
Americans to travel safely and independently when we walk is just as
important as the safety of those who travel by driving cars.  


            You can be connected to congressman Waxman's office by calling
the Capitol switchboard at (202) 225-3121.  


            I want to thank you all in advance for your hard work next week.
We are very close to accomplishing one of our legislative priorities from
this past Washington Seminar, and only by working together can we fully
achieve this goal.  Please contact me with any questions; my contact
information is listed below.
