In the next few days, I will be posting a summary of our meeting and try to provide you with a list of action-items. But, this one should get top priority at the moment. Please give it 20-minutes of your day? Please share the links: I AM AFFECTED GROUP and with anyone you know who has been affected by this terrible scourge!

If you don’t like to type, call in. If you prefer to send a letter – you can copy/paste/edit my message to them:

Dear ________

I am writing you today to ask for  your support (vote Yes) for SB 499 – also known as “Jennifer’s Law”.  The entire state of Indiana would benefit greatly if Jennifer’s Law were passed.

Please consider the impact this law will make for families like mine who have suffered the wrath and been affected by drug addiction.  While it is too late to save my daughter’s life, this bill can impact many others in my family and community.

It is time we fought a better war on drugs – clearly the war Reagan launched 40-years ago has done nothing more than consume funds that could go to much better use.  Why should we spend over a trillion dollars losing a war in our own country?  Let’s win this!  Please, vote YES for SB 499 Jennifer’s Law!
