Michigan Action Items

  1. As posted by Kary Moss: "1st voter suppression bill package is up for a hearing tomorrow before the Michigan House Election Committee --HB 6066, 6067 and 6068. These bills, if passed, will institute a photo ID requirement for virtually all voters with the practical effect of disenfranchising the vast majority of people who don't have ID or show up to vote without it."  Contact your state reps asking them to oppose this!  http://house.michigan.gov/MHRPublic/

  1. This link gives you a form letter (which you can personalize) to sign and send asking your state senator to oppose SB 102 regarding teacher pensions.  This bill goes hand-in-hand with SB 1177 and SB 1178 as wellhttps://actionnetwork.org/letters/vote-no-on-senate-bill-102?source=facebook& 

  1. Michigan lawmakers are still considering a controversial gun bill that would let people bring hidden, loaded handguns in to K-12 schools, college classrooms and dorms, and bars.  Following the election results in our state, the gun lobby is now feeling emboldened and ready to sneak this bill through in the final hour.  Contact your senators and ask them to oppose SB 442!  http://www.senate.michigan.gov/fysbyaddress.html
