Conservative activists Marcus Huey just released the following email:
US House Representatives Franks, Schweikert, Salmon and Gosar have sent a letter to Arizona House Speaker Tobin, urging him to debate and vote on the union reform bills currently proposed in the legislature.
As of today, Tobin is still holding these bills. The logic (excuse?) Tobin seems to be using is to wait and see if the AZ Senate passes any union reform bills. If the Senate does not pass union reform bills, then why should the House be bothered?
This is not true leadership. A real leader would be working for the distressed taxpayer and rallying his membership to get behind union reform. Passing off excuses and hiding behind the Senate is cowardly and WILL have consequences. If you are a government union supporter then man up and publicly admit it, stop using the system to hide. What happens at the legislature no longer stays in the legislature. Those days are gone.
Please help get Representative Ugenti’s HB2026, Paycheck Protection, and Representative Montenegro’s HB 2330, Union Transparency, moved out of Robson’s Rules Committee so that these important bills can be debated and voted on on the House floor. This is how true Democracy is supposed to work.
Please Email Rep. Robson at: firstname.lastname@example.org | 602-926-5549
Also, let’s call Tobin’s bluff and get Senator Griffin’s Paycheck Protection bill SB 1182 approved in the Senate. This bill will be voted on at the beginning of this week. The vote is EXTREMELY close.
Please email and urge the following Senators to vote YES on SB 1182:
Senator Biggs: email@example.com | 602-926-4371
Senator McComish: firstname.lastname@example.org | 602-926-5898
Senator Crandall: email@example.com | 602-956-3020
Senator Worsley: firstname.lastname@example.org | 602-926-5760
Time is short – we need to get this done in the next few days or these bills will die!
