Hello Californians,

The following is a message from Jesse Hartle with a call to action about
quiet cars legislation.  Please read and start making phone calls on Monday.

Congress will be returning to Washington for a lame duck session beginning
on Monday, November 17.  We should take this opportunity to continue our
work on building cosponsor support for H.R. 5734, the Pedestrian Safety
Enhancement Act of 2008.  Adding cosponsor support to this legislation will
be extremely helpful when we reintroduce this legislation early in the next

            Currently 80 members of the House of Representatives are listed
as cosponsors of this legislation; I have included the list by state below
this message.  We should start to make calls to our representatives on
Monday, November 10, and urge them to join as cosponsors of H.R. 5734.  You
should continue to make calls until Congress adjourns.

You may be connected to your representative's office by calling the Capitol
switchboard at (866) 727-4894.


Congressman Berman

Congressman Filner

Congresswoman Lofgren

Congresswoman Harman

Congressman McNerney

Congresswoman Linda Sanchez

Congressman Schiff

Congressman Stark

Congresswoman Tauscher

Congresswoman Waters

 If your Congressional representative is not on the list get your chapter 
members to call this week.

Thank you,

Mary Willows, President
National Federation of the Blind of California
