Update from Linda M. Brown, Mendota Community: (03/01/99)
Went to a meeting tonight about lobbying, was told that Senator Pat Piper of Austin, MN would consider authoring the Senate bil #711 "Traditional Cultural Properties" if we can find a constitutuent from her district to request that she author the bill, please get this out on you web sites and see if we can find someone from her district that is supportive of our cause. This needs to be done ASAP, Love Linda
