THE DUE DATE

Friends of midwives know most due dates are a bunch of hooey, but this due date is real. Well, Wednesday is it. The last day to lobby and call. The overwhelming response from supporters of midwives and midwives is turning this ending around. The legislative session ends Thursday, so this is our last hurrah. The speaker is hearing the calls and letters and getting all sorts of requests from the representatives to get the bill passed. Things are getting very exciting.

Please read our lobbying alert for tomorrow’s plan.

Lobbying efforts having positive effect!

Hi all,

We just got word from Kay Khan that our lobbying efforts are really paying off! The Speaker’s office apparently now is more receptive to the bill and Rep Khan will be meeting with his staff and possibly with The Speaker himself tomorrow (Weds 30 Jul). She asked that we keep up the intense lobbying, so anyone and everyone who can make it, please join us at 11 am tomorrow, Wednesday 30th July at 11 am in the 4th floor coffee shop!

And of course, please keep encouraging friends, family, and neighbors to contact their state representatives!

We are so close!!! Thanks everyone for all your hard work, keep up the effort, we are making a difference!
