Political Forecast: Raise your VOICE!

Excerpted from this post at Political Forecast
Today, we need action at the grassroots and netroots level to the bring Voter-Owned Iowa Clean Elections law out of subcommittee, to the full House Appropriations Committee, and then to the floor for debate in the Iowa House. Ed Fallon (and his group I'm For Iowa) and former Governor Tom Vilsack both support HF 805 and right now the bill is in an appropriations subcommittee with instructions to kill the bill. ... . The subcommittee is expected to meet either tomorrow or Wednesday — without large citizen support and efforts to communicate that support to them, they'll kill the bill. We cannot allow that to happen. If the bill comes out of the subcommittee, it essentially becomes "funnel-proof" and must then be considered before the full House Appropriations Committee and would likely make it to the floor of the House for consideration.
