More on Marriage Amendment

UPDATE: I didn't dig deep enough when I originally posted.  Western PA Reps Krieger and Mustio also cosponsor this legislation. My apologies.

**********************************************************************

Metcalfe's plan to amend the Pennsylvania Constitution begins in the State Government Committee of which he is the Majority Chair. As Chair, he has the power to bring the amendment to a committee vote.  It would be best to squelch that and you can help by contacting the other members of the committee. 

The message is very clear.  There are many more important issues than this and we need our elected officials to focus their time and energy on them — the economy, transportation, taxes, health care, the environment, etc. 

Note that there are several Southwestern PA committe members. It is not too early to galvanize your networks to make the calls and make it personal — people in our neighborhoods need jobs, healthcare, focus on energy issues, education, etc.  The links will take you to the reps contact page – phone, email, webforms, etc.   Just a few clicks if you live in Moon or Penn Township and you can help put this divisive issue aside to focus on your family priorities.
