I can confirm that Joe Donnelly (D-IN) should be in the against column based on the email reply he sent me.

The 11 1 th Congress adjourned without taking further action on H.R. 2267 . This legislation was reintroduced as H.R.1174 in the 112 th Congress. Should this legislation be debated and voted on in my committee or on the floor of the House of Representatives , I will be sure to keep you r thoughts in mind.

Thank you again for contacting me about this important issue. Please do not hesitate to write, call or email me again if I can ever be of assistance. Also, if you would like to receive regular updates on my actions on your behalf in Congress, sign up for my e-newsletter, The Donnelly Dispatch , at http://donnelly.house.gov .

Sincerely,

Joe Donnelly

Member of Congress

Re: Fight for Poker Rights: Weekend of July 9th (see post #1 for today's plan) [O/T]

H.R. 2366, the Online Poker Act, has been referred to three committees in the House: Energy and Commerce, Judiciary, and Financial Services. This is the third and final list of committee members (for the House) -- Financial Services, so let's continue to Facebook them this weekend!

The FOR/AGAINST/UNDECIDED/UNKNOWN after each name is based on H.R.1174, the Campbell/Frank online gaming bill. The names with an “x” in front of them are those who do not allow direct posting on their Facebook wall.

No problem for us. Just post a comment in response to a post already on the page. PLEASE BE SENSITIVE about this though. If the post says the Congressperson is being treated for cancer, don’t bother them with poker. Tell them to get well soon. Be sensitive to what’s going on in their state too – wild fires, tornadoes, hurricanes, flooding, etc. And PLEASE say please and thank you. Courtesy goes a long way.

Oh, and let’s all try to get the bill number correct. It’s H.R. 2366.

Let's all also remember to revisit these walls to like the posts and comments made since your last visit. Thanks!

Hey, people, make sure you READ what you're liking. Somebody posted that H.R.2366 needs to go on the congressional ash-heap, and y'all are liking it!

http://www.facebook.com/EdRoyce?ref=ts&sk=wall

Ryan, Jo, Stosh, and Greg need to go back and unlike, and the rest of us need to pay attention to what we're liking. Just because you see "H.R.2366" doesn't mean the post is pro-H.R.2366.

Sorry if I sound like I'm scolding. I don't mean to. We've all been working hard. And we're doing good. Carry on!

Done. Did the daily plan as well as the "against" list that LastLife put together above.

One way to get around the posting ban is to comment on somebody else's post instead. That's why some of you will see that I kinda piggyback onto your post. It means I'm either using an account that isn't verified, or I've been blocked from posting.

What are the party lines on these people? It would be interesting to know the rep/dem representation.
I'm going to add to that list in the next week or so. I'll add GOP/Dem, the specific committees, and problably a few more facebook pages for the against/unknowns. I'm a little burnt out on lists right now, though.

Re: Fight for Poker Rights: Wed., July 13th & Thus., July 14th (see post #1 for today's plan) [

Let's all call Congress and respectfully demand our rights. These should be short, friendly calls. These are not debates, so there is no need to worry about preparation. Rather, the goal of the call is simply to let these lawmakers know that their constituents support the right to play.

For the phone numbers of your elected representatives, either click here or visit the PPA Take Action page and scroll down to item #2.

Here are some tips on what to say to the staffer who answers the phone:
  • I am a constituent, voter and a poker enthusiast.
  • (For Representatives) Please support H.R. 2366, a bipartisan bill to license and regulate Internet poker.
  • (For Senators) H.R. 2366 has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives. I would like the Senator to support Senate legislation to license and regulate Internet poker.
  • Regulation means strong consumer protections as well as billions of dollars in federal and state revenue.
  • Please support my freedoms and support this bill.
  • Thank you.
  • I would like a response from the Representative/Senator.
After your call, tell PPA how it went, at http://go.theppa.org/callfeedback. Then, please post ITT to encourage others. Thanks!

Recurring actions:


Let's continue to own a lot of Facebook pages (senators, congressmen, Congressional committees, etc.). We need lots of posts on the issue of poker and lots of "liking" of pro-poker comments:
  • The House Committee on Energy and Commerce Facebook page is here.
  • The House Financial Services Committee's Facebook page is here.
  • The Dept. of Justice's Facebook page is here.
Thanks!

Rep. Howard Coble responded to us: http://www.facebook.com/HowardCoble6...20853754617890
