[nfbmi-talk] Agenda, January 20 2011 8:30 P.M

Everyone has been Emailed/faxed at this point and some responses are 
trickling in. I'll give people another day and do follow-up calls on Friday. 
many of the schedulers don't do appointments very far in advance. It appears 
to be a week off for Congress, so we may have a lot of assistants this year.
