Report on "Constitutional Tender Day"

Wednesday -- "Constitutional Tender Day" -- went great at the state Capitol. We talked to a number of "good" guys and gals whom I believe will co-sponsor HB 430. One of them is the chairman of the Banking Committee, where the bill has been assigned. If we can get him to at least allow the bill to be debated & voted on, we've actually got a shot, believe it or not!

Also, Rep. Bobby Franklin said that he had a GOOD number of legislators coming up to him and asking what this bill was about, so apparently, they ARE getting calls, letters, faxes, and emails!

So YES, it's still a great idea to call your state Representative if you live in Georgia. The next step will be to get it brought up in committee, so we'll keep everyone informed of the action that needs to be taken on that.
