Does your representative support the act? What state are you from?

On Oct 18, 2003

My representative (Frank Pallone from New Jersey) co-sponsors the legislation. My area was recently re-districted but I know my former rep (Rush Holt) also supports the bill.

I have contacted my representative by email, phone and letter. He is Mike Honda of California. Every time I am contacted I am added to a mailing list and recive the same government publication touting how great the guy is and how he is working for us all.

His staff has never responded to the issue either form the DC office or the local office. I think he's an unresponsive jerk and I won't vote for him again. I would say he does not support it.

My rep, James McGovern (Mass. 3rd) has committed to support the FALCPA when it is introduced.

They've made noises about replying favorably to what I believe amounts to a "request for support" letter that they expect will go out shortly before the actual legislation, but I still don't feel satisfied that he's committed to the sponsors (Nita Lowey, NY and Judd Gregg, NH) that he'll go to the mat for them.

I'll still put this one in the plus column.

My NC senator (John Edwards) and congressman (Richard Burr) have said they supported the legislation. Burr is in the Health committe in the house. However, both have told me it never came to the floor...in other words, they say they will support it, but...
