THE BILL IS ON THE MOVE IN CONGRESS - AND YOU CAN HELP!

Senators John Hoeven (R-ND) and Pat Leahy (D-VT) re-introduced the bill as S. 1458.

We are honored to have such influential champions in the Senate: the top Republican on the appropriations subcommittee that funds the Legislative Branch, and the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The companion House bill is expected to be introduced soon by Reps. Peter King (R-NY) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) with an extensive bipartisan cast of cosponsors.

Sign the National Petition and Write to Congress urging your Senator or House Member to cosponsor the bill!
