The House version of FOCA (H.R. 1964) has 110 co-sponsors. B. Obama has promised he would sign it into law. the Senate version (S 1173 IS) is co-sponsored by Sens. Obama, Clinton, Liberman, and Kerry.


  1. The add from the USCCB says to contact your representative and senators. It doesn't mention writing to Catholic representatives and senators who do not represent me, but I'm thinking that may be the way to go. If the senate version is co-sponsored by Sens. Obama, Clinton, Lieberman and Kerry, it seems appropriate to appeal directly to Sen. Kerry, who as a fellow Catholic has no business supporting such legislation.

    By the way, as for my own reresentatives, my son recently got me the right email addresses and set me down in front of the computer to ask congressmen to vote against the 700 giga-dollar bailout. I received email responses from both Rep. Simpson and Sen. Crapo. (Crapo voted against the bailout and Simpson voted for it.)

    Where does it say that Obama, Lieberman and Kerry co-sponsored this bill?

  3. I see the link isn't working.

    go to the Thomas site and in the search, click "Bill Number," enter "S.1173" and click search. that should take you to the text of the bill before the 110th congress.

    Now if you click "Bill summary and status" you will get a page that has a "Cosponsors" link. click that and you will see the following list:

    Sen Baucus, Max [MT]
    Sen Bingaman, Jeff [NM]
    Sen Brown, Sherrod [OH]
    Sen Cantwell, Maria [WA]
    Sen Cardin, Benjamin L. [MD]
    Sen Clinton, Hillary Rodham [NY]
    Sen Feinstein, Dianne [CA]
    Sen Kerry, John F. [MA]
    Sen Lautenberg, Frank R. [NJ]
    Sen Lieberman, Joseph I. [CT]
    Sen Menendez, Robert [NJ]
    Sen Mikulski, Barbara A. [MD]
    Sen Murray, Patty [WA]
    Sen Obama, Barack [IL]
    Sen Sanders, Bernard [VT]

    Sen Stabenow, Debbie [MI]
