H.R.1404 (http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-h1404/show) We OPPOSE this bill by a vote of 3/0. Majority opinion: Primary elections are intra-party decision-making processes, not official elections and the government should not fund them.

S.978 (http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-s978/show) We OPPOSE this bill by a vote of 3/0. Majority opinion: 5 yrs. of jail time is far too harsh a punishment for first offense copyright infringement. This outweights the small potential for unpunished copyright infringement due to the current lack of clarity in the law, which is what this bill addresses.

S.978 (http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-s978/show) This bill is pretty similar to SOPA/PIPA but it would have some serious effects if passed so I thought it was worth discussing. It will be our topic starting 16/Jan/13.

There's a new feature in Open Congress, or at least one I didn't know about. In connection to the group stating a position on a bill, as we did awhile ago with H.R.4010 DISCLOSE Act, you can write a letter to your Congressperson. I think it would be cool if when we post a position on a bill we write a letter to our Congressperson/people about it. One person could write, multiple people could collaborate on a letter, or multiple people could write seperate letters. What do you think?

This bill proposes a Constitutional Amendment to repeal the 22nd Amendment. It was proposed in the House by Jose Serrano (D-NY) 6 January 2012. This bill is our next topic (starting 5 December 2012).
