Fellow Transpartisans,

 

The bipartisan NDAA-related bills have now been introduced in Olympia!  This is a grand opportunity to come together for transpartisan action to protect our civil liberties!

 

“Washington State Preservation of Liberty Act” – making detention of United States citizens and lawful resident aliens under the national defense authorization act a Class C felony

 

HB[masked]  http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=1581&year=2013 

SB[masked]  http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=5511&year=2013

 

These bills have been introduced as a bipartisan effort in the House and Senate by Rep. Jason Overstreet (R) and Sen. Bob Hasegawa (D).  A number of bipartisan co-sponsors have signed onto these bills, but we need your help to apply pressure to Reps and Senators to: 1) get more co-sponsors TODAY while they can still sign on, 2) push it out of committee for a floor vote, and 3) get it passed!

 

Please immediately email and call your reps and senators in Olympia (http://app.leg.wa.gov/DistrictFinder/) and push them to co-sponsor the legislation to be introduced by Rep. Overstreet in the House, and Sen. Hasegawa in the Senate.  Tell them:  “I want you to sign on as a co-sponsor of HB1581 / SB5511 to preserve our freedoms that are supposed to be protected under the Federal and State Constitutions!  Will you do so?  (Yes/No)?”  If they refuse to give a Yes/No answer, you could say:  “I consider a non-response an answer in itself!

 

THIS IS A VERY TRANSPARTISAN ISSUE, and most Americans agree we need to fight back against the NDAA indefinite detention provisions.  Please put the word out to your networks, and call your and ask your friends and family to do the same!  

 

In transpartisan spirit,
