OFF (Oregon Firearms Federation) is asking people to email Senator Courtney and tell him to make sure that SB 793 gets a hearing. Click this email firstname.lastname@example.org and then copy and paste the OFF sample letter below:
Dear Senator Courtney,
Your party has been quite vocal about supporting the men and women who serve in our armed forces. Yet you refuse to take action on a simple, no cost bill that would benefit many of them.
Your refusal to hold a hearing on SB 793 tells me that you consider politics more important than people.
Governor Kulongoski has indicated that he supports the intention of this bill, yet it sits in committee with time running out.
Please instruct Senator Ginny Burdick to hold timely hearings on this bill and do all you can to guarantee that it moves out of committee in a clean, unamended form.
Very truly yours,
