Another great informational on contacting your reps that I just found on twitter.
This Blog today is for all the wonderful business owners I have met on Twitter and other online networks that have shared their stories and frustration on how the CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) could ruin or put them out of business come February 10 2009.
I wanted to put together a list of all the Senate member's phone numbers and websites on the Commerce, Science & Transportation Committee first and then I will post another Blog with all the Representative members on the Commerce Community. From the sources I have talked to in Washington, I believe the most effective point of attack at this point is to contact all the Democrats on these committees first and try to get a least one of them that would be willing to take up our cause, because they are the majority and their Chairman (Representative Henry Waxman (CA) and Senator John D. Rockefeller IV (WV) ) decide what will be brought up for discussion at meetings. From talking to a lady at the minority Senate Commerce Committee Office, she said that there is not a lot of interest from the Democrats on the Senate Committee to bring up the CPSIA. We need to make it clear, that they need to be interested! Their names will be hyperlinked to their website, if you need further information. Please contact them by phone if you can at least once a week. This is a fight that we must not give up.
*If you live in the state where there is a Democrat on this Committee, I ask you to get everyone you know that lives in the state to call too. I would even further suggest to contact your local media and newspapers (write to the editor) and start putting pressure on your Senator by stating how this could ruin your business and many other businesses in the state and how they are choosing not to do anything about it! Please post this information everywhere you can! Lets get the word out! So with out further adieu here is the list of the Senators on the Commerce, Science & Transportation Committee:
