EARNINGS LIMIT ACTION ALERT FROM: James Gashel
RE: Floor amendment next week--support needed now!!
The earnings limit bill is expected to be on the House floor next
week, probably Wednesday or Thursday. The bill and the issue concerning
the linkage-retention amendment will probably go to the Rules Committee on
Tuesday--possibly as early as Monday. All members of the House should be
contacted by as many people, and in as many ways, as possible. Faxing
should go forward over the weekend. Calling should be done next week.
Here is the message: support a linkage-retention for blind persons
amendment. Don't support a bill which will let retired people work but
sacrifice work incentives for the blind.
A list of announced House supporters for linkage follows. These are
our friends. They should be contacted and alerted to the absolute need
for their "yes" vote. All other members should also be contacted as well.
To those who say they support linkage, but not on this bill, tell them
that this bill breaks the link between blind people and seniors. Once the
link is broken their support will very likely be of little value.
Senate action, possibly in the Finance committee, may occur next
week, as well. While we should concentrate on the House, contacts of a
similar nature and volume should commence with Senators. Stand by for
more information later about the specific action in the Senate.
Meanwhile, let's all work together to pull out a victory in the House and
do the groundwork in the Senate.
Thanks to all.
