Click onto the website below and then you can click onto a name of the Committee Members.

Click onto one of the names of the House Members in the Committee where HR 1999 is going before on May 17. Once you are transferred to the Congressional site of the member, look for the CONTACT site to click onto.

IMPORTANT-- As an example, the following is the contact site for Rep. Jim Leach... Jim Leach has a local office in Burlington...



214 Jefferson Street

Burlington, IA 52601


(319) 754-1107 Fax

---Important Numbers---

Burlington's Zip Code is 52606, and the area code is 319. To send Jim Leach an e-mail, he may want you to give a local address and phone number to send him an e-mail. What rubbish!!! Anyone can send Jim an e-mail, whethor he likes it or not! He is a public figure! A US Congressman! Give Jim what he wants!!! A local address & phone number...

Send Jim Leach a message in opposition to HR 1999! If needed make up your own local address and phone number for the Burlington area to get around his attempts to stop you from sending him an e-mail!

The Zip Codes may ask for an extra 4 digits, and I found that 4444 seems to always work to get through when sending an e-mail to them.

Each website may be very similiar to screen out people sending e-mails, and the info for their local offices are usually in the CONTACT part of the website. Just write down the local particulars including the City, Zip Code and Area Code of the local District to use as a means to gain access to sending them e-mails. Give them a local address when filling out the form... It takes only a moment and it works...
