CALL YOUR REP:
Call the U.S. Capitol at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to

Here's a sample of what you can say during your call:

This is unacceptable, and I strongly urge Representative ____________ to
vote AGAINST the bill.
What is Rep.___________________'s
position on OFTA? Would you email me a statement of Rep __________'s
