FROM ARIZONA TO CALIFORNIA TO PUERTO RICO – REPUBLICAN – DEMOCRAT – INDEPENDENT – “WALK ON WASHINGTON” CREATES BAND WAGON EFFECT – REPUBLICAN #110 AND TWO DEMOCRATS = 294 U.S. HOUSE CO-SPONSORS FOR PAST ACT

 WASHINGTON, DC –  The inspirational  “WALK ON WASHINGTON”  rally in front of the U. S. Capitol last week created a significant band wagon effect, resulting in three more U. S. Representatives co-sponsoring the PAST ACT this week.  

ALL of the credit goes to the “WOW” Volunteers who converged on Washington with passion and on a mission.  These determined folks (mostly ladies)  rolled up their sleeves and went to work in the old-fashioned American way.
