29 Apr Legislative Alert4: CALL NOW!
PRO-CHILD BILL (SB266) SHOULD BE DEBATED ON SENATE FLOOR ON TUESDAY, APRIL 30TH
Senate Bill 266, a bipartisan bill known as the “Children’s Equal Access Act,” could be up for a floor vote in the Senate April 30, 2019.
The Children’s Equal Access Act aims to maximize a child’s time with both parents in the event of divorce or separation. From talking with some of the legislative assistants, some of the oppositions and proponents are still confused about SB266. Please do not reference to SB266 as a 50/50 child custody bill. There’s nothing in SB266 that references 50/50 custody.
Action Needed: We ask you to take a moment to contact (call and email) as many of these State Senators as possible before 1:00 pm on April 30th. You can contact them individually or send a group email to all of the Senators.
When calling, urge the Senators to vote YES on SB266 and not to support any amendments. Communicate to them that you deeply appreciate their commitment to doing what’s right in Montgomery by rebuilding families by fixing Alabama child custody law. Please vote YES on SB266. (It’s that simple, no long conversation needed.)
As a reminder, please always be respectful and courteous with your communications.
Together, we can make our voices heard to support children having two parents!
Thank you so much for taking a moment to stand up and be heard! Watch for a similar action request soon for your State Representative when the bill goes to the House for a vote.
