Subject: Legislative Alert-House Passes the Pedestrian Safety Enhancement


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.
