The tortise continues down the path

Our legislation, HR 5924, continues to gain support.  We’re up to ten co-sponsors who have signed onto Rep. Wexler’s bill:

Rep Sensenbrenner, F. James, Jr. [WI-5] - 4/29/2008
Rep McCarthy, Carolyn [NY-4] - 5/14/2008
Rep Putnam, Adam H. [FL-12] - 5/14/2008
Rep Cohen, Steve [TN-9] - 5/22/2008
Rep Pastor, Ed [AZ-4] - 5/22/2008
Rep Andrews, Robert E. [NJ-1] - 6/3/2008
Rep Davis, Danny K. [IL-7] - 6/3/2008
Rep Johnson, Eddie Bernice [TX-30] - 6/3/2008
Rep Jackson-Lee, Sheila [TX-18] - 6/3/2008
Rep Wasserman Schultz, Debbie [FL-20] - 6/4/2008

Our efforts on Wednesday and Thursday should lead to additional co-sponsors in the next few days and weeks.

The most notable piece of news – beyond the momentum that we’re gathering with co-sponsors – is that on Thursday June 12, the subcommittee on immigration, citizenship, refugees, border security, and international law will have a formal hearing on our bill.  We are working with the Congressional staffers to identify the appropriate witnesses to speak on this urgent issue.
