Welcome to the Frontpage
US Defender Unit Commanders,
Greetings, this is an immediate CALL TO ACTION for all units! Your attention and follow up is required regarding the bill titled S-132, “The Gang Abatement and Prevention Act 2009 “.This bill is sponsored by Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA) and currently sitting in the Senate Judiciary Committee. We do not have a specific time frame that this bill will make it to the floor, however, it is imperative through our CTA that we let our elected officials know we are not comfortable with the vague and all encompassing language written into this bill. WE hope to get our letters written to the appropriate sponsor and co-sponsors with speed and efficiency before it makes it to the floor.
Please target Senator Feinstein, Patrick Leahy (Judiciary Committee
Chairman) and any co-sponsors you see named on this bill. Here in Texas, we have targeted both of our US Senators, Cornyn sits on the Judiciary Committee and Hutchison is a co sponsor of the bill.
In your individual States target your State Senators, let them know the current language as it is written is not acceptable! Remind them of the original HIPPA bill, basically a good bill but some bad parts to it. We have successfully been instrumental in changing the language of that bill, we need to do the same here.
I have included some sample letters, and a link to the bill, I hope this helps. I feel confident your SMRO’s have been in touch with you regarding S-132, if they have different information than we do, please share it with us. The historic impact of the US Defenders movement can be realized if we come together as one voice, follow the established and successful procedures, and stay the course!
Commanders, call in your US Defenders, get their letters back from their individual clubs and returned to you, timing is of the most importance when we take this kind of action, you are not alone out there! We are here to help with your campaign if you need us.
Best of Luck and let us know what your challenges are, we can get them fixed and utilize ” best practices” from all over the United States.
