URGENT HELP NEEDED FOR MONTANA TODAY!!!

HB 418, a bill which allows private horse-slaughtering plants to be built in Montana and offers them some protections from those who might challenge a plant's license passed through a Senate committee in Montana  by a vote of 7-2 on Tuesday

The measure's next stop is most likely scheduled for Thursday March 19 where the full Senate will debate and vote on HB 418.  If the Senate approves and doesn't amend HB418, it will go to Democratic Gov. Brian Schweitzer for his signature into law.

NOW is the time to flood those phone lines with calls from all over the nation asking the MT Senate to vote NO on HB 418

 

Messages can be left at (406) 444-4800.for the following Senators that we are targeting:  You can also fax to 406-444-4875

Senator Jackson SD 5  

Sen Roy Brown SD 25  

Sen Jim Shockley SD 45 

Joe Balyeat SD 34  

Sen Essman SD 28  

Sen Laible SD 44  

Sen Lewis SD 42

I have taken this a step further and personally emailed every Senator on the list. Here is that link. You can click on each name, most have emails.
http://leg.mt.gov/css/Sessions/61st/roster.asp?HouseID=2&SessionID=94.

I have heard back from 4 Senators so far that are going to be voting against it. It is a start.

Please keep emailing.

Thank you

It doesn't take too much time if you go here and print the list of senators:

http://leg.mt.gov/css/Sessions/61st/roster.asp?HouseID=2&SessionID=94.

Then go here:  http://leg.mt.gov/css/Sessions/61st/legwebmessage.asp

Fill out the info, select a senator and send the message, check off of your list, click back, and select a new senator.  This way you won't have to fill out the information over and over and over again.

2nd Reading is scheduled for HB 418 tomorrow (3-19) after 1:00 pm on the Senate Floor. It is number 12 out of 12 readings.

So if you have not called or emailed you still have some time.

Thank you,

Sandy
