COAT Action Alert: Target: Rick Boucher, Virginia

COAT has just sent out its own Action Alert, targeting Representative Rick Boucher, Virginia. Boucher is important because he chairs "the critical House Subcommittee on Communications, Technology & The Internet." According to COAT, it is essential to get Boucher's support of HR 3101 because COAT met with staff from other representatives on this commitee, and in COAT's words, "they are deferring to Chairman Boucher on this legislation." In other words, what Boucher says is what goes! What follows is a modified form of COAT's Action Alert.

Is Rick Boucher Your Representative?

Do you live in these Virginia towns and cities? Do you have family or friends in these Virginia towns?
  • Abingdon
  • Big Stone Gap
  • Blacksburg
  • Clintwood
  • Coeburn
  • Gate City
  • Grundy
  • Norton
  • Pulaski
  • Radford
  • Wise
  • Wytheville
If you, friends, or family live in any of those towns in Virginia (here is a map of the 9th Congressonal District in Virgina), Boucher is your Representative! Call his Washington, DC office: 202-225-3861. Better yet, call his telecommunications specialist, Amy Levine, directly: 202-225-3861. Levine can be emailed at amy.levine@mail.house.gov.

When you call or write, state that you want “Rep. Boucher to support and co-sponsor H.R. 3101,” and why!

  1. Did anybody write Boucher? He hasn't budged at all! A group of people with disabilities should go and visit this guy and tell him to act FOR people with disabilities! More than one group should visit him!
    Jam his office!
    Jam his mailbox! Especially if you live in his district or his state (VA)!!!
