Special Correspondent: Emily Miller

Will you ask your lawmaker to co-sponsor a bill to eliminate the legislative scholarship program? Last week, hundreds of BGA supporters signed a petition demanding that lawmakers end the legislative scholarship program that lets them give free tuition to children or relatives of buddies, political allies or campaign workers.

You made a difference—bills to end the program have now been filed in both the House and the Senate, but more demands need to made. Please contact your State Reps, Congressmen and State Senators to keep this momentum going to stop certain individuals from getting special privileges.

This week, lawmakers are going back to Springfield, and they need to hear from you!
