WOW! The move to the Senate happened so fast we didn't even know it happened! Yesterday, June 23rd 2011, the Senate adopted HCR 129-- Here's the video:
That's right, it didn't even take them 1 minute to decide!
Thanks so much to all who made this happen! The SAVELOUIS.ORG contact form has been changed to send thank-yous to the House and Senate! (until the next time a threat arises) So go thank them!

Alas, the legislators at the House ran out of time and could not get to HCR 129 today even though it was on the schedule. We will be watching for it on their next schedule here.
According to the latest draft of the House Order, they will reconvene at 5:00 PM on Sunday.

HR 129 was heard today before the House Committee on Appropriations, and they talked about it for about 30 minutes. It passed and will be voted on by the whole of the House. Thank you all for your support in getting us this far! Here's the full video. (we regret the low quality of the recording)
BUT It only got by with one vote! Thanks for all the emails you-all sent, but we'll likely need even more to make sure EVERYONE understands how badly we need LOUIS!
We still have longer to fight for LOUIS and we'll have more to say about this later.

If you missed it, here's a video clip of Rep. Michael Jackson and LOUIS Exec. Director Sara Zimmerman discussing HCR 129 with the House Education Committee on June 8th, 2011:
HCR 129 has been referred to the House Committee for Appropriations. We don't have details yet on whether HCR 129 will be added to the HCA agenda. We will keep you informed, but please help us too: If you are aware of HCR 129's scheduling, post it to our Facebook, YouTube, or email the savelouis.org admin.
