    Senator Pittman is not giving up on this SB363 bill. Just a friendly reminder we need you to ACT.

    He is still pushing SB363 regarding using your design over and over, not compensating you and NOT taking into consideration the health safety and welfare of the public. Bill is one page, please read. SB363.pdfgovownership.pdf

    Please email and call everyone on the committee and senators and OPPOSE SB363. IF you called and emailed yesterday, please do so again today. Emails count as one and phone calls count too. Do both!  We are working hard to STOP this bill.

    Contact members of the Senate Fiscal Responsibility Committee and urge them to oppose SB363.  Contact as many Senators as you can and ask them to do the same thing to oppose any anti-architect/engineer amendments.  You can call them in Montgomery today at 334.242.7800.
