12/8/16  To-do List                                                    

There is no special way to attack this action list. If it seems overwhelming, just do the first two items to make it easier.  If you have a little more time, do the third….and the fourth…. Or, choose items that speak to your heart.  Some people cut and paste the list, print it off and take it with them so they can check items off while they are out and about during the day and just waiting or driving.  Others click and do items as they work on their computer or phone.  There is no right way to do this.  Just do something!

  1. Formerly known as HB4605, which was dropped, is now probably going to be stealthily put into another bill so we don’t realize it.  The intent of the language is to gut the protected School Aid Fund upwards of $400 million under the guise of "cleaning up the tax code" leading to $271 LESS in per pupil spending across the state next year.  No matter where they put it, what they call it, please contact your representatives and senators and tell them that you do not support any changes that result in lower per-student spending!  https://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/MI

  1. The Voter (suppression)  ID bills (HB 6066-6068)  have passed the house, and go to the senate today. CALL YOUR STATE SENATOR and register your displeasure with the proposed voter ID legislation, which would disenfranchise a number of our fellow Michiganders.   Find your senator here:  http://www.senate.michigan.gov/fysbyaddress.html

  1. While you are on the phone with your senator’s office, make known your feelings about HB 4643 and 4630, which were passed last evening in the State House.  These are anti-picketing/anti-union bills.  http://www.freep.com/story/news/politics/2016/12/07/anti-union-bills-pass-michigan-house-representatives/95122178/
