Message from Debbie Smith

i Everyone
Great news!  Matt’s Law went to the Assembly Floor Thursday afternoon and PASSED with a 78-0 vote.  WOO HOO!!!  Everyone present voted YES!  This is awesome news, this means that their were only 2 no votes along the way and after next week this could change.
Now we go back to the Senate Floor for concurrence the beginning of next week where we will see if either of our 2 no votes have changed.  If it passes the Senate AGAIN we are off to the Governor.  So you know what to do next right?  Write the Governor.
Here’s his address…
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
State Capitol Building
Sacramento, CA 95814
I encourage you to get started now there will be a lot of Bills on his desk to review and we would like him to be fully aware of the importance of ours.
I apologize that I did not get this out sooner but did not have Internet access in Arnold where I received this incredible news.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for our “Matt’s Law Celebration” November 10th, 2006.  Details to follow but I would really like anyone that can make it to be there for this very special event.
Thank you for your relentless support.

Debbie, MM
