Good Morning Everyone, at the bottom of this email is the contact details
for senate and house members and bill numbers that have just been introduced
in the house and senate that we need to jump on.  I have included members
outside of our district for you so that you may contact others that you know
in the state so you can get them to contact their member as well. If anyone
needs help or direction, I would be happy to walk you through how to do
this.  Just call me (360)-980-2385 or email me, matthew.hines at comcast.net
<mailto:matthew.hines at comcast.net> .  Congress is in recess starting on
Monday and will be back in their home districts so now is the perfect time
to strike.   Here you go and please forward.

The Transitioning to Integrated and Meaningful Employment (TIME) Act of 2017
