CONTACT SENATE LEADER DON PERATA NOW!
May 13, 2006
California's historic opportunity for an open and accountable government is coming to a crucial test this Wednesday, May 17, and it needs your help. Your phone call to Senate President pro Tem Don Perata can make the difference!
Assembly Member Loni Hancock's AB 583, the California Clean Money and Fair Elections Act, passed through the Assembly in January by a 47-31 vote, but it now faces a difficult test in the Senate Elections Committee. Senate President pro Tem Don Perata has publicly said he supports AB 583, but we need him to do everything he can to help it pass.
Please call Senator Perata's office at (916) 651-4009 or (510) 286-1333 and tell them that you'd like to thank Senator Perata for supporting AB 583, the Clean Money bill, and tell him how much it would mean to you if he'd do everything he can to help it pass.
That's all you have to say! It will just take a minute.
If you'd like, you can add things like:
Senators Debra Bowen (chair ), Jim Battin (vice chair), Kevin Murray, Charles Poochigian, and Gloria Romero are the members of the Senate Elections Committee. If you are in one of their districts, please also call your senator and urge him or her to vote for AB 583 on Wednesday. (Who is my State Senator?)
