Update from Linda Brown (03/30/99)
From Linda M. Brown: Dear Friends, spent part of the day at the capital again, had meetings with some of the Senators that sit on the transportation committee, we are still applying much pressure to Senator Flynn, her office told us today that we would know by noon tomorrow if they will schedule a hearing.. I was told today that Senator Flynn feels personally threaten by some of the phone calls and messages she has recieved. I hope that no one has used these type of tactics, as we will be the one put under a microscope for this, so please be firm but polite. I spent some time today with one of Governor Ventura's aides, it seemed to go well, I think he understands a little better what we are trying to accomplish. Whether he can convince the Governor may be another thing. We will keep working on this. I have a real bad feeling that Senator Flynn may decide to let us know at 12:00 tomorrow that she can only hear this resolution sometime tomorrow afternoon. If that happens we will not be able to gather all the supporters we had at the last hearing. If you would like to attend I suggest you call her office shortly after 12:00 tomorrow to see when or if the hearing is scheduled. If we get the hearing on Wednesday I will let you know. Senator Flynns office number is 651-296-4274 or call the senate information office at 651-296-0504. Pidamiya, Love Linda
