March 2014 Your Legislative Quick Update

We know you are all busy so we prepared the “Cliff Notes” version of the current bill.

We also prepared a document called: “How You Can Help”.  These are the critical actions we need everyone to take and the timeline for doing it.  The 3 minutes you take to read this will make a big difference.

Licensing Bill FAQs

In the next few months we need to SPRING INTO ACTION!!



Since we know you are busy, in addition to the webinar you can watch online, we have provided a link to download an audio version so you can listen while you commute, cook, exercise, and turn that time into double effective Legislative Action time!


You will download a single zip file containing both audios and two PDFs of the slides that are shown.
