Default Senate Bill S89, House Bill HR619

HELP SAVE THE DELTA QUEEN!! Now you know why you need to CALL your Senators and Representative! Senate Bill # 89 came out of the Committee yesterday with unanimous support. House Bill # 619 was introduced today. NOW is the time to CALL and give them every reason you know why they should support and pass the exemption for the DELTA QUEEN as soon as possible. There is bi-partisan support in the Senate. There is strong support in the House from the Republicans. We need more support from the Democrats in the House, particularly Congressmen from river states who are on the Transportation Committee. So if Cheri Bustos of Illinois, or Daniel Lipinski of Illinois is your Representative in the House the DELTA QUEEN needs your help. If you live in the Indianapolis area Andr'e Carson is your Rep - CALL him immediately. Richard Nolan of Minnesota is on the Committee. If you live in Minnesota here is your chance to help. And for our Florida folks, Lois Frankel and Frederica Wilson are on the committee. Please call them first chance you get. PLEASE help keep this National Historic Landmark cruise our rivers again. Thank you so much.
