    Time to Make Some Noise for NDAA Nullification in Tennessee!

    Posted by Lesley Swann


    As of now, the Law Enforcement Communications Act (HB2619/SB2669)has been taken off notice in the General Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee. The reason is that there has been so much opposition to the legislation, specifically from Republican members of the subcommittee, that the sponsor, Rep. Bill Dunn, has taken it off notice to prevent it from getting voted down.
    Quite simply, the only way to get this bill passed is to call down the thunder and lightning on these legislators in the form of phone calls and e-mails to insist that they pass this bill. If we don’t raise a torrential storm of calls and e-mails, this bill will go nowhere.

    It’s time to make some noise Tennesseans, and stop the NDAA in its tracks!

    Action Items:
    1. Contact the members of the subcommittee and demand that they pass HB2619/SB2669 without weakening it in any way. Be polite but firm and let them know that if they do not pass this bill, you will work hard to make sure that they are not in office in 2013. Keep in mind that we are getting opposition from legislators in both political parties.

    3. Contact Rep. Dunn and Sen. Campfield to thank them for sponsoring HB2619/SB2669. Assure them that you want them to continue the fight for the rights of Tennesseans.
    Rep. Bill Dunn: Republican, District 16

    Sen. Stacey Campfield: Republican, District 7
    306 WMB, (615) 741-1766, sen.stacey.campfield@capitol.tn.gov
    4. Contact your personal state representative and senator and encourage them to co-sponsor and support HB2619/SB2669. Let them know that if they do not support it, you will work hard to make sure they are not in office in 2013. Remember to be polite, but firm. You can find your the legislators for your district by clicking here and entering your street address on the left side of the screen.
    5. Contact Speaker Beth Harwell and Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey and let them know you support HB2619/SB2669 and ask them to co-sponsor it.
    Speaker Beth Harwell: Republican, District 56
    107 WMB, (615) 741-0709, speaker.beth.harwell@capitol.tn.gov
    Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey: Republican, District 2
    1 LP, (615) 741-4524, lt.gov.ron.ramsey@capitol.tn.gov

    6. Send a link to this article to everyone you know and encourage them to call and e-mail these legislators.
    7. Please consider running against any legislators in your district who do not support this bill. The deadline to file to run this year is April 5th. We need people with courage and principles to stand up against legislators who lack the moral courage to do the right thing.
