WASHINGTON, DC ““ Democrat Representative Tim Walz (D-MN) is now co-sponsoring the PAST ACT (Prevent All Soring Tactics Act).
He becomes the 301st United States Representative to say no more pads and chains to create the sore Big Lick.
Now 69% of the U. S. House of Representatives support #PASSTHEPASTACT.
REPRESENTATIVE TIM WALZ (D-MN)
Walz served as an enlisted man in the U. S. Army as Sergeant Major, and taught public school for 20 years. He has the highest ratings from many educational interest groups. Walz is open minded and forward looking on social issues.
PAST ACT supporters are 4 Republicans short of meeting the HASTERT RULE in the House, and seem to be stalled in the Senate on bringing the matter to a vote.
There are only 9 (NINE) legislative days left in the U. S. House.
Then the House is gone from August 1 until returning to work on September 8, 2014.
LEGISLATIVE DAYS REMAINING – U.S. HOUSE – 113TH CONGRESS, 2ND SESSION
Nephew Eugene remains concerned.
