    From Joe Waldron's GOAL Post:

    I have already emailed my Senator, as has my husband. We will be calling in the morning.

    Please, if you've done nothing else to oppose this one, CALL or WRITE or BOTH. Do it now, don't put it off.

    Mar 21 Senate Rules "X" file

    Does anyone know what the X file is? I googled it but, with the x-files TV show any information I might find is buried in 1.18 million hits. I also tried the search at access.wa.gov and didn't really find anything. I would like to sound a bit more aware when I call.

    "X" files

    means it's in a suspended state. A bill that fails to pass out of committee or Rules is put in "X" status, meaning under normal circumstances it's dead for the session. At the end of the session, it goes back to it's original policy committee.

    But as noted in the GOAL Post, it ain't over til it's over. A bill can be pulled from either committee or Rules and sent directly to the chamber (House or Senate) floor. That's what they're trying to do here. Later information indicates the Brady Campaign contacted it's members in Washington, asking them to ask their Senators to vote for a pull to the Senate floor.

    And we need to contact more than just Republican Senators. They only have 1/3 of the seats in the Senate. We need righteous Democrats in on this as well:

    And it doesn't hurt to e-mail Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown at

    Senator _____:

    I understand that the Brady Campaign has been trying to get SB 5197 brought to the floor for a vote. I am requesting that you vote AGAINST this bill. This bill would wrongly force private citizens to enforce federal gun laws, even though we are not paid, trained, or authorized to enforce such laws.

    On the other hand, I request that you sponsor legislation to close the drunk driving "loophole" that cost Rebecca Griego her life when she was gunned down by Jonathan Rowan, who was living in the country illegally for many years. When he was arrested by Seattle police they did not check his residency status because of Seattle's "Sanctuary" law.

    You can learn more about the drunk driving loophole at the following URLs:

    I just got a call

    from one of Majority Leader Lisa Brown's aides. He assures me (in the Senator's words) the bill is dead for the year and will NOT be pulled to the floor.

    My thanks to all of you who have written or called your senators. Grassroots pressure rules!

    Not surprisingly, I received no response from either Ms. Brown, nor my Senator, Ms. Prentice.


    What was that line about taxation and representation??? :scrutiny: :mad:
