So I did not know whether it was still OK to call you J.J. since your signature block and email salutation say Jason now.  
I have always felt that the Washington Seminar is one of the most powerful events in the Federation; not just because it results in so much positive movement in the Congress, but because it is so effective at building strong teams within affiliates.  Sounds like this year's experience was as positive as ever.  Let's hope that we can bust that sub-minimum wage proviso right out of the Fair Labor Standards Act once and for all.  After all, a few things may have changed around here since 1938 when it was put there in the first place.  

Thanks to you J.J., and to the whole delegation:)

We're at 37 cosponsors total where we were at 9 before Washington Seminar. I spoke with Kerry personally and he seemed genuinely interested in what we had to say, which was quite refreshing. Thanks, Kerry.
