Michigan HB5162 would deny state-level support and resources to the NSA and all federal agencies involved in warrantless spying. It must pass in the House Oversight And Ethics Committee to receive a vote in the full House.
PLEASE TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS to support this important bill.
1. Call the House Oversight And Ethics Committee Chair, Ed McBroom. THANK HIM for cosponsoring HB5162. Let him know you support the bill and would like to see it move through his committee quickly. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.
2. Call the rest of the committee members. Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES on HB5162.
