Subject: [Nfb-legislative-directors] S. 2001: TIME Act Introduced in Senate




I write with wonderful news. Thanks to our combined efforts and tireless
advocacy for the TIME Act, Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) introduced S. 2001:
Transitioning to Integrated and Meaningful Employment (TIME) Act. If you
haven't seen it already, see our press release can be found at


While we encourage everyone to take a moment to celebrate the introduction
of Senator Ayotte's bill, it is now TIME for us to start finding cosponsors
for the TIME Act-in both the House and the Senate. Thank you to everyone who
has alerted us of their efforts to secure meetings with their
representatives. We now encourage you to try to set up meetings with your
senators while they are home. 


In January, some of you told us that your senator said: "I'd be willing to
cosponsor a bill like that, but I do not want to introduce." It's TIME to
remind them of their promises. It's TIME to pass the TIME Act, my friends!  


Yours in the fight for fair wages, which is one step closer to becoming

It's TIME to Eliminate Subminimum Wages for People with Disabilities



The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.

Blind and help ensure all blind Americans live the lives they want.
