Important Patent Law Reform Opportunity

June 24, 2009 Dear Senator, I am writing to urge prompt enactment of an important reform to patent law that will promote innovation in critical medical research.  This reform is revenue neutral and would encourage the continued development of life-saving drugs that are beneficial to potentially millions of Americans.

Key Vote No: H.R. 1256

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, including many in your state, I urge you to vote “No” on H.R. 1256: the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.  This legislation marks a radical increase in power for the Food and Drug Administration, additional growth of government, and a significant intrusion by government into the daily lives and decisions of its citizens.

Help Create a Competitive Marketplace for Telecommunications in Florida

For too long the Florida Public Service Commission has maintained a stranglehold on the state’s telecommunications market.  This vital sector of Florida’s economy moves much faster than government bureaucrats can keep up with, but still cumbersome regulations and oversight authority unnecessarily burden the marketplace, putting the Sunshine State at a competitive disadvantage with other states that have made regulatory reform a priority.Fortunately, legislation is currently under consideration in the Florida Legislature that will allow consumers the benefits of telecommunications reform and increased competition.  HB 1465 and SB 2626 will help get government out of the way, promoting investment and encouraging innovation in the telecommunications market.TAKE ACTIONFloridians deserve the benefits of increased competition amongst telecommunications providers.  By removing regulatory barriers that the Florida Public Service Commission currently has in place, HB 1465 and SB 2626 go a long way towards leveling the playing field and making the market truly competitive.  Consumers will see the benefits through more choices and competitive pricing and service options.In addition, streamlining telecommunications regulations has added benefit for Florida’s economy.  As companies see the state opening up the market and tearing down barriers to competition, Florida will become a more attractive option for them to invest in more jobs and infrastructure building as well.Contact your legislators and the governor TODAY! 1.    Use FreedomWorks Toll-Free Hotline to the Florida Legislature – (866) 946-1928 – and ask to be connected with you legislators.  If you need help identifying your state legislators click here and use the “find your legislature” feature by entering your zip code.2.    Send an important message to your legislators and the governor on this issue by clicking here and urge them to support HB 1465 and SB 2626!Remind them that these bills take a de-regulatory approach and will streamline and modernize existing law to encourage economic growth and healthy competition.  They will strip out unnecessary and over-burdensome regulation that will better enable the free market to work in the telecommunications industry.  Especially in such turbulent economic times, Florida consumers and the economy as a whole should reap the benefits of increased competition in the form of more choices, better service, and competitive prices!

Key Vote No: Thrift Savings Plan Legislation Being Considered Under Suspension of the Rules

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) legislation being considered this week under suspension of House rules.  This legislation could take the form of one bill or two, but in either case the intent is to force all federal employees into the TSP in order to pay for costs associated with H.R. 1256, the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act that Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA-30) is championing.

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to VOTE “NO” on H.R. 1106: Helping Families Save Their Homes Act of 2009.  Also referred to as “cram-down,” this legislation allows bankruptcy judges to modify home mortgages, including reducing principal rather than leaving those business decisions in the hands of the banks and lenders who own the homes.  In addition, the act modifies the Hope for Homeowners program by removing the taxpayer protections in place and making it easier for those who made risky choices to take advantage of taxpayer funds to bail them out on their mortgage.
