Congress Passing 28 bills Without Reading Them

Please send a letter telling Congress to pass the Read the Bills Act.

 

You may copy or edit this…

 

The House will try to pass a whopping 28 bills this week, before the August recess.

 

That's AT LEAST 347 pages of legislation! But…

 

* As of July 22, one bill wasn't even ready for the Congressional Printing Office to post online

* Several of these bills didn't even have SUMMARIES for the public to read

 

I KNOW you're not going to read these bills! Therefore, I can say…

 

* This isn't “representative government.”

* This is a rubber stamp serving the interests of political cronies.

 

I DO NOT CONSENT to being governed this way!

 

In contrast, the Read the Bills Act would…

 

* Force you to read the bills you support, or hear them read before a quorum in Congress..

* Give the public a seven-day window to read bills online before a final vote, so we can give you our input

 

Represent me. Know what you're doing. Obey your oath of office.

 

Pass the Read the Bills Act!
