Public hearing before the House ED&T committee is scheduled for tomorrow.
So far there are about 10 people committed to attending, which based on the positions of those on the committee, should be plenty.
Should anyone in the State want to contact their Representatives and politely
ask them to voice support to the ED&T committee for the favorable passage of HB9 tomorrow that would be great.
It is customary to sign an e-mail to your Reps with your first and last name followed by the city that you live in.
That helps them to know you are a constituent of theirs. This adds weight to the message because if you aren't in their district, you can't vote for their competition!
It is also acceptable to send a note to members of the ED&T committee despite not living in their District (but still in the State) because the decision they make tomorrow will impact you. Members of that Committee can be found here - http://www.legislature.state.al.us/house/housecommittees.html#Anchor-BOARD-7299
Calling the office of the Reps is also fine. You will usually speak to an Aid of some sort (I'm not sure what that person's title actually is). You can just tell them that you are calling to ask for a favorable committee vote on HB9 "The Homebrew Bill". They keep a tally and pass that along to the Rep. who looks it over as part of their decision to vote Yea or Nay.
Folks from out of state. We appreciate the concern, but please don't contact any of the Reps. We have no proof of it happening or not happening, but our opponents said they they received a lot of correspondence from out of state last year.
If anyone has any questions on how they can help or wants any info, feel free to post. I'll do my best to get the info to you.
