It is nice to see that Camp is supporting our issues. I can recall a time when we could barely schedule an appointment with him during Washington Seminar. So it is definitely nice to see a change of heart.

Hello Michigan,
 
 
 
This is wonderful.  Here are the Michigan co-sponsors.
 
 
 
Michigan
 
            Congressman Camp
 
            Congressman Conyers
 
            Congressman Kildee
 
 
 
 
 
We need to let these people know we appreciate their support.  This is even
more important, since Dave Camp will be the House Ways and Means Chair,
probably the most powerful guy in the place. The fact that he knows who we
are and supports our issues can only be good.
 
 
 
Warmest Regards,
 
 
 
 
 
Fred

Act
 
 
 
Fellow Federationists:
 
 
 
S. 841, the Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act, was just passed by the House
of Representatives, and will now go to the president to be signed into law.
 
 
 
 
I want to thank you all for your hard work over the past three years to
protect the right to independent and safe travel for the blind of our
country.  My final ask on this legislation is that we take a moment to
contact the offices of our sponsors-Representative Towns (202-225-5936) and
Representative Stearns (202-225-5744), and Senator Kerry (202-224-2742)-and
thank them for their efforts to get this legislation done.  
 
 
 
Below is a list of all cosponsors by state, so affiliates can make
appropriate calls to members of their delegation that supported this
legislation.  You may be connected to any member of Congress by calling the
Capitol switchboard toll free at (866) 727-4894.  I will alert you all when
I learn of the president's expected signing of this legislation.  
 
 
 
Thank you all again for your outstanding effort to change what it means to
be blind.
