Upsurge in UAFA Co-Sponsors Continues
By Julie Kruse on 09/27/2010 @ 03:17 PM
The list of co-sponsors for the Uniting American Families Act continues to grow. By the end of last week, we again beat our record high for co-sponsors in both the House and the Senate. With the addition of Representatives James Garamendi (D-CA, pictured) and Robert Andrews (D-NJ), we now have a total of 134 cosponsors in the House – including our lead sponsor, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY). Senator Mark Udall (D-CO) also added his name to the list of co-sponsors in the Senate, bringing our total co-sponsors there to 25, including our lead sponsor, Senator Leahy (D-VT).
(See last week's press release for statements from Senator Leahy and Congressman Nadler about the recent upsurge in co-sponsors.)
Thank you to the grassroots for your continued efforts to have your member of Congress support the Uniting American Families Act! If your Senators and Representatives are cosponsors, please call their office, via the Capitol switchboard, at (202) 224-3121 and thank them for standing up for our families!
