Hi all,

I've just heard from the Sanchez (D-CA) office and it seems that not many members of congress have signed on to the "Put More School Counselors Where They're Needed Act". We are really asking for all grassroots efforts right now. Please, please contact your congress-person and forward this message along to any & all that would like to see this bill move forward. In addition, I've heard that very few members of the Education and Labor committee have signed on as co-sponsors and no Republicans have co-sponsored at this point. Here is a list of members on the Ed & Labor committee (have your members hit them hard w/ phone calls & e-mails... now is the time!) but please remember all members are fair game! -- any support looks great and increases chances of the bill moving! Please see the string of messages below if you need a refresher on my early August message. Thanks & Best Wishes!
