Just a reminder … big Congressional committee vote this week in Washington DC. If you haven’t already, express your support for HR 5767 by sending your representative a pre-templated PPA email.

Especially if your congressperson is on the House Financial Services Committee. (Damn, they’ve really got a lot on their plate. Scroll down and you’ll get a sense of what a big step getting this bill to a vote really will be.)

  1. bill foster

    so bill foster is on the financial services committee. that’s interesting

    It got voted in committee today, Peter King added an amendment that would have basically made the UIGEA unenforceable, it lost in a 32-32 tie. Then the bill itself was voted down by voice vote.

    Kevin, I was writing that post now with all my super-inside secret info sources … but no, you’ve gotta scoop me, don’t you?

    You did get one detail wrong though. Ha ha!

  4. Kevin Mathers

    I eagerly await your post to see where I went wrong. 🙂
