This has become an urgent matter, they are voting on it next week. Please contact your senator and your representative via e-mail and urge them to vote IN FAVOR OF THE LARSON AMENDMENT.

Thanks to all who do what you can!!!

Hi!
It's not too late, he's just sent out another batch of form letters for supporters to sign. If you want to be added, please write him ASAP and he will send you a letter as well.

Thanks, Alice, for posting this again!

Well, some good news anyway, my local state rep emailed me back (after my lengthy dissertation on the evils of circ) to say he absolutely supports NOT having medicaid cover it! He said it's responsible for at least $100,000/year in CO of taxpayer money, and agrees it should be used for other things.. So hopefully they'll cease and desist this nonsense immediately.
