HR 1207 Hearing, 9/25/2009 at 9:00 am

After months of knocking on doors and attending rallies and functions to gather signatures on HR 1207 petitions, the House Financial Services Committee will finally hold hearings this Friday, September 25, beginning at 9:00 AM EST. Please check this link for any changes to the schedule, and to watch the live feed from the hearings.

It is vital that we all call the members of Congress that serve on the Financial Services Committee. It is imperative that we remind our Representatives not just to support an audit of the Fed, but we must also demand that they vote on this bill on its own merits, without adding or taking away from it in any way, and without adding it to any other legislation.

There are 71 members on this committee and they are all listed below. Call their offices, write to them, email them. Let them know they need to support HR 1207 and demand an up or down vote in the House. If you live in their district, let them know. Go to their office.

    There are now 300 co-sponsors of this bill. Why can’t the bill just be brought to the floor now with over 2/3rds of the house co-sponsoring it?
