COP on the Hill: Stories from the weeks of December 21 & 28, 2018

COP on the Hill

Stories from the weeks of December 21 & 28, 2018

Shucks: I spent Monday visiting 20 key, Republican offices in the Senate with Don Murphy of MPP. The purpose was to have those Senators attach the STATES Act (10th Amendment for MJ) onto the First Steps bill which eventually passed 87-12. Ultimately, we were unsuccessful, but we were swinging the bat.

1.4 miles, 8 flights of steps & 4 hours: Wednesday afternoon was spent visiting 36 Senate offices to pass out info (see bottom) and grab some unscheduled presentations.

Grass Tops: On Wednesday morning, after I made an end-of-the-year presentation to the Grover Norquist group of conservatives, I had an excellent discussion with a guest; the Lt. Governor of Mississippi. He was young and receptive to ideas outside the normal, get tough policies.

Texas maxim – if you are telling the truth, it ain’t braggin. I include this comment from the former NM governor, Gary Johnson, because you as a COP supporter should know the character and reputation of the organization.

Howard, of all the people I have met on the national political scene you are among those at the top of that list. I!!! will always be at your service. Thanks, Gary
