Key vote happening today!

by admin on June 8, 2010

Over the next few weeks, there will be a few critical moments to act to ensure midwifery care – here’s the MOST IMPORTANT action you could take so far!

A critical committee vote today at 11:30 am means we must *flood* ALL the Assembly Higher Ed committee members with calls/faxes/e-mails *nonstop* ASAP.  Contact *all* the committee members, not just your own legislators. Please send faxes (best!) or e-mails (great!) and follow up with a phone call  – and watch here for news!

the short call list (only committee members not identified as supporters)

call script

Can only make one call today?  Make it Assemblywoman Glick, who chairs the committee.

Key messages:

– you support the Midwifery Modernization Act (S5007/A8117)

– you want the Higher Ed committee to report it out of committee so that it can be voted on by the entire assembly

Thanks for taking action to support midwives!  This bill is only moving thanks to all of the hard work of consumers around the state like you!
