Mendota community URGENTLY seeks assistance

Update from Linda Brown (04/25/99)

Dear Friends, As you may already know the bill that we had planned to attach the admendment to was not heard on the floor on Friday. This bill had it's second reading on Thrusday and it is normal for the bill to then be placed on general orders the next day. This is Senator Carol Flynn's bill and she may choose to have it voted on whenever she is ready. She apparently chose not to do this at this time. The bill may go to the floor anytime between now and May 17, so we must continue to strive to reach all the Senators of the state and ask for their support of this amendment. This amendment asks that the coldwater spring be designated and protected as Traditional Cultural Property. We are still waiting to hear from the state on the TCP report and we will let you know the outcome of this as soon as we know. peace and prayers, Love Linda phone: (651) 296-8075 phone: (651) 296-5094 phone: (651) 296-2556 phone: (651) 296-2084 phone: (651) 296-7809 phone: (651) 297-8060 phone: (651) 296-1253 phone: (651) 296-8660 phone: (651) 296-6238 phone: (651) 297-8073 phone: (651) 296-4274 phone: (651) 296-4264 phone: (651) 296-3826 phone: (651) 296-5975 phone: (651) 296-9457 phone: (651) 296-3219 phone: (651) 296-8017 phone: (651) 296-9261 phone: (651) 296-8881 phone: (651) 296-5285 phone: (651) 296-4351
