Hello, all.

If bills are to make it out of the general assembly this year, they must 
cross over to the other house by Friday, March 27. In other words, House 
bills must move out of their committee and be voted on by the whole House 
and sent to the Senate and Senate bills must be moved out of their committee 
and be voted on by the whole Senate and be sent to the House. We need to 
call delegates and senators on Monday and Tuesday to eliminate 
discrimination on the basis of physical disability in custody and adoption 

The phone number for each legislator on this list is 410-841 plus the 
individual extension or 301-858 plus the individual extension. Please read 
below and call the delegates and senators in Baltimore City or the county in 
which you live. Please ask delegates to vote in favor of HB 689, Disabled 
Parents Custody Rights, and to move it out of the Judiciary Committee 
quickly. Please ask senators to vote in favor of SB 613 Disabled Parents 
Custody Rights, and to move it out of the Judicial Proceedings Committee
