SJR0127 Update

May 6, 2009

TN Residents:

SJR0127 is going to the House Calendar and Rules Committee. It is scheduled for 8:00 a.m. (Central Time) on Thursday, May 7th.  It is item #18 out of 40 on the agenda. According to the www.capitol.tn.gov site, “While the Senate Calendar Committee determines when a bill will reach the floor for debate, the House Calendar and Rules Committee determines whether a bill will reach the floor.” In other words, the House CRC could stop the bill from reaching the full House. Please contact the committee and ask the members to support the bill and move it forward!

Here is more information about how the committee works:

The House Calendar and Rules Committee schedules bills for consideration on third and final reading and entertains debate on the merits of legislation recommended for passage by the eleven standing committees.
The committee consists of the Chairman of each standing committee; the Speaker; the Speaker Pro Tempore; the Majority Leader or his designee; the Majority Caucus Chairman; the Minority Leader or his designee; the Minority Caucus Chairman; two members each of the majority and minority parties appointed by and to serve at the pleasure of the Speaker; and a Chairman, Vice-Chairman and Secretary as committee offices. This committee meets several times a week and acts on all legislation when requested by the sponsor.

Source of that quote: http://www.capitol.tn.gov/house/committees/calendar.html.

That Web page lists all the members of the committee. Remember, you don’t need a detailed letter, just a quick message asking the members to support SJR0127. You can send email to all the members at the same time.

And remember to pray, too!

I think this is a complete list of their email addresses, but please verify before using them:
