Update from Linda Brown (03/26/99)

From Linda M. Brown: Dear Friends, Today we had the hearing before the Senate Govt Ops committee, the resolution was passed unanimously. The resolution has been referred to the Senate Transportation committee. They meet on Tues. and Wed. of next week. (not much time left to act!) We need everyone who is a constituent of Senator Carol Flynn to call her and ask her to hear this resolution or pass it to the floor for a full Senate vote. (This is crucial for constituents) Also we need phone calls and emails to everyone who sits on this committee and urge them to support the resolution and ask Senator Flynn to hear the resolution or pass it to the floor. (This is crucial too for everyone else) The following Senators sit on this Committee; Senator Carol Flynn Minneapolis, DFL, 651-296-4274 Senator Steve Murphy Redwing, MN zip55066,651-296-4264 Senator Dean E.

Everyone can call or email these people but it really helps if their own constituents contact them, If you have family or friends in any of these areas please encourage them to call orEmail as soon as possible. The resolution # is 1658 protecting the Coldwater Spring area as traditional cultural property. I'm sorry I keep saying just a few more days, but we just have to keep trying and praying. Senator Gary Laidig from Stillwater sits on this committee and will support our efforts to get this resolution heard. Pidamiya, Love Linda
