WOW! Two more co-sponsors for the One Subject at a Time Act

The good news continues. There are two new co-sponsors for the One Subject at a Time Act (OSTA). Plus…

Please see the P.S. for an update about our amicus brief in the Birchfield mandatory blood test case before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Yes, 2016 is a year of progress! Here are the new co-sponsors for the OSTA…

  • Rep. Barry Loudermilk [GA-11]
  • Rep. Jim Bridenstine [OK-1]

That brings us to 13!

Rep. Mia Love of Utah, the original sponsor, continues to really promote this bill. Here’s how we can help her make progress…

  • We must recognize that each co-sponsor has friends among his or her colleagues in the House.
  • We should urge co-sponsors to ask their colleagues to become co-sponsors too.
  • This is more likely to happen if we praise each new co-sponsor for supporting OSTA.

So we’re going to use “social media” to…

  • Praise co-sponsors
  • Ask them to find other co-sponsors

We have other actions planned, but… Today’s actions are for TWITTER.

TWEET Representative Barry Loudermilk, (R) Georgia – @RepLoudermilk

TWEET Representative Jim Bridenstine, (R) Oklahoma – @RepJBridenstine

The most powerful approach is to write a custom tweet — that’s you, using your own words. You should…

  1. Thank each of them for co-sponsoring the One Subject at a Time Act.
  2. Copy us on your tweet by adding @DownsizeDC (by tagging us @DownsizeDC, both the Representative’s staff and our team will see it on Twitter).

But if you’re in a hurry or don’t know what to write, here’s a Tweet you can copy and paste…

Thanks for cosponsoring the One Subject at a Time Act and working with @RepMiaLove @RandPaul @DownsizeDC to promote it.

Please send both of these Tweets right now. We did it!

We’ll be back tomorrow to take more action. We hope you will make it a PRIORITY to…

  • Open our messages
  • Do our VERY SIMPLE action items EVERYDAY

Your daily participation can cause real change, step by easy step.

Thanks for being an ACTIVE DC Downsizer!

P.S. On January 27 we proposed filing an amicus brief in the case Birchfield v. North Dakota. This case reviews two states laws (from North Dakota and Minnesota) that make it illegal for citizens to refuse blood or breath tests during an intoxicated driving arrest. Many of our supporters responded with funding, and our attorneys were able to file the brief in February. You can learn more and get access to the brief itself on the blog of our sister organization, the Zero Aggression Project.
