WorldNetDaily readers sent nearly 1,000 letters to their elected
representatives in a one-week period through the Netpaper’s
Legislative Action Center, a service
allowing immediate access to government email addresses, legislative
voting records, and media outlets.
Well over 90 percent of readers’ letters sent last week were
addressed to members of Congress. Representatives from Texas and
California were the top recipients — 104 and 95 letters respectively
were fired off from the innovative new Center.
More than just an e-mail address book, the Legislative Action Center
is a complete guide to issues and events, members and staff on Capitol
Hill and each state capitol. Readers who previously may have been
discouraged from communicating with their representatives or the news
media because of the time and labor required to research and write
letters in the traditional way can now just click and send.
To use the service, readers simply type in their zip code to find
email addresses, biographical and voting information on their federal
and state representatives. The Center allows participants to see beyond
what politicians present them by viewing critical information now
available, all with the click of a mouse.
The service provides contact information for local news media and
reports about current issues and legislation. Additionally, users of the
center may receive free legislative alerts and updates, get status
reports on bills and follow key votes. There is also a section on
Capitol Hill basics, tips about communicating with members of Congress
and general information about Hill staffers and the legislative process.
Participation in the Center continues to grow as readers discover the
valuable resources it provides. More than 7,006 letters have been sent
in the last eight weeks.
Other federal representatives receiving a sizable number of emails
this week include those from Pennsylvania (62), Georgia (42), and Ohio
(42). Messages have been sent from 45 different states across the U.S.
