We've just been alerted
to the fact that a Bill -- HB 2261 -- has been introduced in the Pennsylvania
House by Rep. Michael Sturla, "after the Model State Emergency Health Powers
Act". Although Sturla is a Democrat, Republicans have already been
advised to "support the bill... it's an Anthrax bill".
Please do not make calls
yet as we're awaiting a copy of the bill as introduced. Better to have
our ducks in a row before calls are made. If we jump the gun on this
before we know what's in the bill our efforts will be discredited.
Please do forward this, because if it is happening in Pennsylvania, it is
most likely happening in all states. . . or will be.
Up to the last hour it had
not been printed yet. When it is, it should appear on the
www.legis.state.pa.us web site.
If one of you pull it up I'd greatly appreciate your sending it over, and
maybe give me a call at 570-537-3035 so I'll know it's there.
We will be writing a two-page
summary along with 'talking points' for legislators who should then receive
calls. If you've listened to the last six Sweet Liberty broadcasts,
you'll now understand why the conversations with Roger Mundy took place.
The broadcasts are archived on the
I would like to have a Pennsylvania Only e-mail group so we can stay in
touch. If you wish to be part of the group, send a note to
let me know. You might want to consider doing the same in your state,
although it's a good idea to know who's setting up the list. Lots of
infiltrators floating around this NET as we know.
When you contact me, please
also give me your real name, address, phone and fax (in case of computer
crash that would disable our communications lines). I started
this about a year ago and the computer crash lost some files, including that
one. If you don't wish to let me know who you are, don't bother
contacting me, as I don't care to network with an anonymous e-mail
If you're concerned or afraid
to be known, or "have you name on a list", consider the fact that Big Brother
has been storing information on all of us for all our lives. There is
no need and no time for fear. This will be a legitimate and sensible
effort to work together with elected officials who are mostly unaware of
For others on our list:
I'll be talking with Darren, our webmaster, to set up a section solely addressing
this issue, where we can keep current on other states which introduce the
Act, and where we can give help to people in other states by making calls
to their legislators.
It's understandable why
the bill was introduced here at this time of year when our activities are
centered around Holiday preparations. The same thing happened in '95
with the Conference of States. Preparations were made in '94 and the
Resolution hit with an explosion in January '95. By early
February twelve states had passed it through both chambers... even
though we were aware of the inentions beforehand!
In the case of the COS,
legislative leaders had rules suspended, bypassed hearing committees
and took the resolution directly to the floor for votes, because the
rank n' file legislators were told it was going to put the 'teeth' into
the 10th Amendment State Sovereignty Resolution.
This time around, we all
have more experience, and besides the fax and e-mails, we have the shortwave
broadcasts. We'll stay on top of this for as long as necessary.
You can listen to Sweet
Liberty live on Monday thru Thursday at 10-11pm est on
shortwave at WWCR 3.210
