I wish the article had included some contact info for letters, etc. This is not good news at all.

Mr Fix,
can you please post a list (if you have one handy) of those we should contact to P, B & M (pi55, bitch & moan).

5hit like this makes me wish I lived in some other state that recognises how important these programs are to sporting folks...anybody know one?

Just look over the left hand column for either "House"; "Senate"; "by city/town", or if you live in a place split by ward/precinct, then go to the bottom of the column, which allows you to plug in your address and find out who represents your particular residence address. None of the info you input logs anywhere - it just allows you an ability to get representative information. Some legislators info includes email or fax info.

Dave, How can one find out which vote accomplished the theft of funds. I want to know whether to thank or berate my legislators or before e-mailing them in response.

Here's the thing: the House has been 'informal' (sessions) of late. This may have been rammed through tacked to something else, been "emergency" legislation, or whatever. I picked up the story from someone else's thread elsewhere. I'm working on trying to find out where what is...
