ABC continues to push against the PRO Act as it heads to a vote on the House floor this week. Although the bill is likely to pass, as it has a majority of the House co-sponsoring, we are expecting a strong opposition vote from most Republicans and some swing district, pro-business Democrats that have expressed their concerns with the bill.
ABC is sending the attached Key Vote letter on the bill to the Hill today and encourages members to continue to contact their U.S. Representatives to oppose the bill: https://www.votervoice.net/iframes/ABC/Campaigns/70659/Respond.
Also, please see the attached draft letter to the editor that can be customized and placed in your local markets and feel free to reach out to Rachel O’Grady (Ogrady@abc.org) if you need any assistance with drafting and placing.
