According to the Equal Justice Alliance, “In a late night move on Friday, AETA was added to the House Suspension Calendar for THIS Monday! This underhanded fast-track maneuver, like the one in the Senate, means that AETA will not have any debate…only an up/down vote.” The vote is scheduled to take place after 6:30pm.
Please contact your representatives today (Sunday) and tomorrow morning, by phone, fax, and/or e-mail, and ask them to vote against HR 4239, S 3880 and to have it removed from the suspension calendar. The EJA provides a sample letter and talking points, as well as links to your representatives’ contact information.
If you’re in the DC area, lobby against the AETA on Monday at 10am. For details, check out NoAETA.org on Monday morning, or call 800-632-8688 or 202-468-4834.
