Contact Ways & Means committee members

The end of session (June 23rd) is approaching quickly. As the bill is currently in the Ways & Means committee, it is important to convey your SUPPORT of the bill to the members of that committee. They will soon have the responsibility of deciding if the bill should continue to move forward.

They need to hear from you.

Currently, emails are being sent the the Ways & Means Chair, Assemblyman Farrell, asking him to put the bill on his agenda so that it can be voted on by the rest of the committee members. With their majority vote, the bill can move forward in this legislative process. The committee has 34 members. We have confirmed 17 votes and need your help with the remaining 17 members.

They need to hear from you:

Email, write or call all seventeen (17) remaining Assembly members that are on the Ways & Means Committee. Ask them to support the Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth bill #A8960 by voting YES to move it out of their committee. (see ways & means committee sample letter on the right in blue).

Daniel J. Burling
