You may have heard that last month the House Republicans began the process that, they hope, will force a vote on the Shuler/Tancredo “SAVE Act” in the House of Representatives. Rep. Thelma Drake (R-VA) filed a discharge petition for the Shuler/Tancredo bill and GOP leadership hopes to get enough signatures to force through this ill-conceived measure.
The Republicans only need 218 signatures in order to bypass normal committee procedures and force the SAVE Act to the floor. There are already 185 signatures on the discharge petition!
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE AND SAY:
PLEASE DECLINE TO SIGN THE PETITION TO DISCHARGE
H.R. 4088 THE SHULER-TANCREDO BILL
(ALSO KNOWN AS THE "SAVE" ACT)
AND, IF YOUR REPRESENTATIVE IS A CO-SPONSOR OF H.R. 4088
PLEASE WITHDRAW YOUR NAME AS A CO-SPONSOR OF
H.R. 4088, THE SHULER-TANCREDO BILL
