I heard from Bev Johns this morning.
She told me that now it would be helpful to re-post names and telephone numbers of Members of JCAR all this coming week. See below.
Bev met with JCAR staff this Friday morning in Springfield.
“Everyone did GREAT JOB sending emails to JCAR,” said Bev.
Now we need to convince each and every Member of JCAR (State Senators and State Representatives) that will vote on what happens to Part 226 at their meeting on November 17.
