How Our Laws are Made Follow the path a bill must take to become a law. Notice the red icons which are places where your actions could make a difference to help stop a bad bill. Notice that that first place is while the bill is in committee.
It’s important to remember that calling a committee member who is not your MoC will not be effective. As the Indivisible Guide reminds us, only the MoC who depends on your vote cares what you think! This makes your call when a vote is in committee all the more important. You are calling on behalf of resisters all over the country. They depend on you, and you depend on them to stop bad bills in committee.
