Time to make noise. Most of you have Democrats as your state Rep’s. Make their phone ring. They’re moving to take away HOME RULE and our ability to protect our citizens.

Of immediate concern is letting those legislators on the Senate and Assembly committees know of the opposition. Their names are listed on attached documents. Thanks for your support on this.
