We're getting closer, folks!
« on: May 04, 2004, 10:39:59 AM »
Got this today from the head of Iowa CNBP:

Dear Members,
It is our understanding that the Governor may address HF22 sometime this week. We need to step up on the phone calls and letters to Governor Vilsack.  Write and call him daily for the status of HF22. Encourage the governor to sign HF22 and to act soon. I have sent a letter to the Dr. Laura Schlessinger show hoping to draw national attention to our bill. Keep your fingers crossed!
Mark Griebel
Office of the Governor
State Capitol
Des Moines, Iowa 50319
Fax 515-281-6611
Governor Thomas J. Vilsack writes that "Iowans have traditionally recognized that strong families are essential to ensuring that our children will enjoy a secure future...Iowans intuitively understand that children need to receive the support and guidance of both parents...[and] an emerging set of scientific data supports our belief that a healthy bond between a child and the child's parents has a direct impact on the future success of the child...."

Governor Vilsack continues, "...children with two parents who actively and positively engage in their life by providing financial support, love, guidance and discipline, have a greater chance for success than children who receive an active involvement from only one parent."


Sure would like to take a trip to Des Moines this week!
Handle every stressful situation like a dog........if you can't play with it or eat it, pee on it and walk away.......

Just sent the letters I had waiting for this to finally get to his desk.

Got everything crossed and will make a few calls.
