Thank you, but please keep the heat on!
Our lobbyists walking the halls of the Capitol tell us your responses are working! Members are asking to be taken off as co-authors of AB 719, and we hear that the bill is in serious trouble!
We can save animals and kill the bill! But please, on Monday we need to double down on our efforts.
Below is my original email I sent out last night...please tweet, or make calls on Monday. Thank you for the help and keep up the great work!
TWO CALLS TO ACTION!
Earlier this year we asked you to oppose a bill that would change existing state law originally passed in 1970 that protects alligators and crocodiles.
With your help we were able to defeat AB 527 (Voepel), but now they are back trying to reintroduce the bill with some shady legislative maneuvering. We can't let them get away with this!
The new bill is
, authored by Assembly Members Blanca Rubio, Adam Gray, Principal Coauthor Anna Caballero, and co-authors: Senators Jones, Assembly Members Archuleta, Cooper, Flora, Gallagher, and Waldron.
We must bring down the house with calls, protests, tweets, posts, etc. to stop this egregious effort to change our historic law.
