Wisconsin Please Attend Assembly Override Vote of Governor's Veto!

Saturday, January 28, 2006

 

Continue Contacting Your State Representative

 

Last week, the Wisconsin State Senate voted 23-10 to override the Governor's veto of the Personal Protection Act. The bill now moves to the Assembly for an override vote that is currently scheduled for Tuesday, January 31. 

 

Once again, there are a sufficient number of supporters in the Assembly to override the veto, but only if past supporters stay steadfast in their support of the bill. 

 

The Governor and other opponents are currently hard at work trying to find a Democrat who will play politics with Wisconsinites' personal safety by changing his vote.  All six Assembly democrats who voted for the bill in December must stay steadfast in support of the bill in order for the override to be successful.  Four of the six have publicly committed to voting in support of overriding the Governor's veto, but Representatives John Steinbrink (D-65) and Terry Van Akkeren (D-26) have not yet committed to voting in favor of the override.

 

Please contact these two representatives on Monday and ask them to remain consistent in their support of Wisconsinites' right to protect themselves and their loved ones by voting to override the Governor's veto of the PPA, as they both did in 2004.

 

You can reach Representative Steinbrink by phone at (888) 534-0065, or by e-mail at rep.steinbrink@legis.state.wi.us. You can reach Representative Van Akkeren by phone at (888) 529-0026, or by e-mail at rep.vanakkeren@legis.state.wi.us.

 

In support of the Personal Protect Act please attend Tuesday’s override vote at 10:00 a.m. on the 3rd floor of the West Wing at the capitol in Madison.  Also contact your State Representative reminding him or her to continue their support of the PPA by voting to override the Governor’s veto on Tuesday, January 31.  To contact your State Representative please call (800) 362-9472. 

 

You can find further contact information by using the "Write Your Representative" feature found at www.NRAILA.org.
