Quote of the Week

Take Advantage of the October Recess on Behalf of Reach Act
October means a congressional recess this year. And we have 201 names on the House version of the Reach Act (including the original lead). What does this combination mean? It means that now is the time to take action on the Reach Act (H.R. 3706), reaching out in-district/in-state, asking that the positive momentum behind the bill (H.R. 3706/S. 1911) translate into passage of the bill.
