    I've got my keyboard warmed up-time to notify Rep Thompson about H.R 2052. Although the last time I was on his home page- the wasn't anything under legislative action!

      Contact Page. The reason there's nothing under "Legislative Action" is precisely the problem.

      It's an "orphan" bill, filed by a single Congressman, and not particularly an influential one at that, then shuffled off to be buried in committee with not a single co-sponsor, another Congressperson who'll put their name on the dotted line and say "I want this bill passed".

      The more Congresspersons who co-sponsor a bill the more likely it is to be taken seriously by the rest of the House, the more likely to get through Committee and actually get to a floor vote. The more likely to pass.

      Which is why it's so important to get every Congressperson we can to co-sponsor this bill.

      Then it'll get some "legislative action".
