> I found a few items you might want to keep in mind for meeting
> First, the Friends' Service National Legislation site alerted me to
>this impending legislation from Senator Helms. Let's ask Feingold to
> Here's the same site's recommendations on talking to legislators about
>upcoming military spending authorization, though it doesn't give bill
>numbers. Seems like handy background.
> Also, let's give Feingold a big thanks for his lone opposition to
>"Patriot Act" S.1510. Here's the ACLU's summary of that:
> Now here are a few more thoughts. Please bear with me, since I am new
>negotiating that www.thomas.loc.gov site (?address I think). I found out
>from that that Feingold co-introduced S.1564, a bill relating to US
>adherence to the ABM Treaty. It's now in the Committee on Armed Services.
>I haven't read the bill. Let's do that since it's lead by Feinstein, who
>can be hawkish.
> A truly excellent resolution S.172 has been introduced into the Senate
>by Sen. Wellstone. This is a sense resolution relating to humanitarian aid
>to the Afghanis. Let's ask Feingold to back it. I couldn't tell if he has
>or not. It's in the Committee on Foreign Relations now. Wellstone
>submitted a speech about it in the Congressional Record of 10/18.
> There's also a S.173 resolution condemning violence against
>Iranian-Americans. Presumably this won't be controversial, since they've
>already done the same with Arab-Americans and Sikh-Americans.
> This may be outside the realm of our group, but S.1473 federalizes
>airport security (if the House will pass something similar). I'm not sure
>how Feingold voted on this. Personally, I think it's unacceptable for a
>legislator NOT to vote for this. Certainly is a more direct response to
>the problem than starting a war!
> Hope this helps. Looking forward to seeing you Tuesday.
