I don't know. I'm not a lawyer or anything. I read somewhere in the cliffs thread that it had to go through Judiciary, Energy/Commerce, and Financial Services Committee. So I figured I'd work on the lists even though the whole process could take a while. I think the committee chairman has to schuedule the hearing and after debate they vote. But I'm no expert.

I've updated this a litte. I added three facebook pages that I couldn't find before (Pitts, Latta, and I can't remember who else).

Also, I've put FOR or AGAINST or UNDECIDED or UNKNOWN with each name. This status refers to how they stood on H.R. 1174, so will likely reflect how they feel on H.R. 2366.

Please copy and paste this info to other threads as appropriate.

-------------------------

The FOR/AGAINST/UNDECIDED/UNKNOWN after each name is based on H.R.1174 which was an internet gambling law, not specific to poker, so don’t assume they still feel the same. Having said that, I think we should particularly work on the undecided folks and convince them to side with us.

An “x” in front of their name means they don’t have open posting on their wall. You have to respond to a post on the wall. Please just make sure you’re being appropriate. If it says they have cancer and are being treated, don’t write anything but, “best wishes for a speedy recovery.” Though I see nothing wrong with saying, “from an online poker player.” 

I agree. Leave Bill Cassidy alone for a while. He addressed us and will look into the issue. We'll give it like a month and see if he supports the bill. If he doesn't take a clear stand on it after that, we can hound him again.

Mine lasted a few hours and then facebook was allowing me to only like 2-3 posts before banning me again.

Mine lasted literally the time that it took me to snap that shot, put it on Photobucket, make that post, and then click back to Facebook. 90 seconds and that's being generous.

Must be because facebook knows what an awesome job you've been doing! I'm actually surprised you got the block because you add little comments along the way too.

I thought I'd figured out a way to beat the block. I made a "page" which is connected to my first account, but different. Was hoping liking with my page (called, "Regulate Online Poker Please") would be different. But, alas, no. I got blocked again! Grrrrrrrr.

With the introduction of the Barton online poker bill, let's all make sure we are respectfully telling Congress that we demand our rights! Let's continue to hit this on Facebook today, following up up with emails and phone calls starting tomorrow.

Let's also be sure to get page views for articles on the issue. I submitted a good article to digg.com, where I am a top 30 "digger". If you like the article, please upvote it here.

Let's focus on members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce (The ones with an x in front of their names means they don't have open posting. Just respond to a post already on the page.) As we have a new event with the introduction of this poker bill, let's go ahead and continue to own these pages.

For manageability, I subdivided them into subgroups:

Group A
Group B
Group C
* Thanks Sajeffe for putting this list together

I’ve have been sending letters through the PPA’s website and called my representatives; I also recently donated to the PPA. Let’s keep the pressure on and get Representative Barton’s bill through committee. We can do this!
