October 15th Legislative Council Meeting

The Legislative Council meeting begins at 10 a.m.on this Thursday, October 15th. Here the tentative schedule and the grouping of the bills. Rep. Thomas’ Bill, An Act To Prohibit Mandatory Vaccinations, is labeled LR 2136 and can be located on pg 9 of 29 of the doc titled “lrsbysubject2010”. You will notice that the tentative schedule does not specify the order of the bills or when they will be up.

When you enter the State House, go to the 2nd Floor. Walk passed the Governors Office, to the stairs. Go up that flight of stairs. Turn right or left and go up the next set of stairs to the next landing. You will be on Floor 2 1/2. The Legislative Council room has a sign on the door identifying it. It is Rm #334

We will be taking the opportunity to meet as a group to map out our future direction. 

If any of us have cameras and video cameras, please seriously consider bringing them and taping this. I want that Council to have no doubt that they are being watched and that their proceedings will be broadcasted.

I have to take a few minutes here to attempt to express my gratitude to all the help from everyone. The e-mails and phone calls, to the council and the media, the letters to the editors, the copying of the flyers, the dissemination of the flyers, the rides to events, the web posting and website creation, the calls that many of you have had with me, your patience, everything. I am so thankful to know that there are so many of you who care enough to act. I cannot express how much I need to know others are fighting too. Thank you.

And if you feel like it, these 2 can’t get enough phone calls. Hannah Pingree (867-0966) and Elizabeth Mitchell (622-2629)
