I am writing as your constituent in the 22nd Congressional district of Texas. I support S.541 - Safeguard American Food Exports Act of 2013, and am tracking it using OpenCongress.org, the free public resource website for government transparency and accountability. I urge you to please cosponsor S.541.
I know the most recent action for this bill is as follows: "Read twice and referred to the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions." on Mar 12, 2013
100% of users on OpenCongress.org, a free, non-partisan resource, support S.541.
Sincerely, Susan Davis
Note to Congressional staff & elected officials reading this: this letter was sent through Contact-Congress features on OpenCongress.org, a free public resource website, but in the future we seek to compel the U.S. Congress to adopt fully open technology for constituent communications. For more information how your office can better handle public feedback through an open API and open standards, contact us -- even today, there are significantly more efficient and responsive ways for our elected officials to receive email feedback than the status quo of individual webforms. For greater public accountability in government, we must make the process of writing one's members of Congress more accessible and empowering. Looking ahead, we will release more data from Contact-Congress letters and Congressional response rates back into the public commons. This will result in a new open data source on bills & issues people care about, as well as encourage best practices in constituent communications and make it possible to grade members of Congress on their responsiveness & citizen satisfaction.
