Deja vous: Grassroots free speech may be threatened again

Remember that Senate bill #1 last month that threatened grassroots type organizations from contacting their constituents via the internet? Your calls to the senators influenced them to vote for an amendment that eliminated the offensive clause that restricted email alerts. Great. Good. We thought that was settled. Maybe not.

Focus on the Family action alert notified me that Nancy Pelosi, our Speaker of the House, may introduce similar restrictive legislation!

I think we can all agree that whether you are a conservative or liberal, restricting a grassroots type organization from contacting their membership via email IS a restriction of the right to FREE SPEECH.

Please call Speaker Pelosi and ask her NOT to introduce that Section 220 language (that section restricted the grassroots groups from using the internet) into any future House legislation.

Speaker Pelosi's Washington office: 202-225-4965, San Francisco office: 415-556-4862
