On Sept. 14, the board of Heritage Ohio meets to consider, among other issues, taking an advocacy position in favor of an extension of the DQ's SOLAS exemption. In bringing this matter to their attention, I already have sent my contact Frank Quinn a lengthy explanatory letter and some support materials (chiefly "Arguments in favor...." from this website). It would be very good if others of you would add your input to their deliberations, focusing especially on why the DQ is an important part of OHIO'S heritage.

Their address is 846 1/2 E. Main St., Columbus, OH 43205; Frank's e-mail is fquinn@heritageohio.org. The more people they hear from, the better.
