2019.06.22 Issues/Addresses Updates and Links for Comments on Federal Rules Changes

Here are this week’s Issues/Addresses write-ups. Remember—we don’t have to agree on everything. Use the parts of this list that speak to you and ignore those that don’t. Democracy isn’t an exercise in lock-step marching.

As always, please use/share/distribute as you see fit.

National Issues/Addresses

California Issues/Addresses

And here’s my friend Martha’s list of crucial proposed federal rules changes and links to the official comment pages. Federal agencies are required to post rules changes before they go into effect and are also required to take into consideration comments in response to those proposed changes. Using the official comment page for each item is the best way to ensure your voice is heard.

June 16, 2019, National and California Issues/Addresses Write-Ups for Postcarding and Links for Comments on Federal Rules Changes

Here are this week’s national level postcarding write-ups. Please use/share/distribute as you see fit. Remember, you can skim the list and pick the ones that speak to you; none of us has to do everything.

Here are this week’s California level postcarding write-ups. There are just a few of them this time around.

Both lists include links to the appropriate directories so you can easily find you legislators.

And here’s the weekly set of links to comment pages for proposed federal rules changes, courtesy of my friend Martha. When you’re addressing a specific proposed rules change, you will want to use the comments page, since the government has a procedural obligation to consider this material.

Finally, here’s my friend Martha’s set of links to comment pages for proposed federal rules changes. These are important!

Thank you for all you do! If you can, drop me a comment and let me know how postcarding is going for you. It’s nice to know there are others out there working on this.

Issues, Addresses, and Federal Comment Periods, 6/2/2019

Here are this week’s issues/addresses write-ups for postcarding, along with an excellent document linking to federal comment sites for proposed regulation changes. These last are important because they’re under the charge of the executive branch of our government, so writing to Congress about these issues won’t have any effect—expect in very unusual circumstances when Congress passes a law to undo federal rules (not likely to happen now with the House/Senate split).

Look over the postcarding write-ups and act on those that speak to you. Check our the federal comment site links and do as many of those as you can—they’re quick and essential.

Government Rules Changes Open for Comment

Here’s the list my grad school friend puts together with links to comments pages for proposed federal rules changes. Changes in rules can be sweeping, with broad effects (it was a federal rules change that ended net neutrality). Before these changes go into effect, the government is required to solicit and consider public comments. Please look this over, choose the issues that matter to you and do some commenting (no postcards or stamps needed).
