Start a Discharge Petition for a Clean Continuing Resolution

Subject: U.S. Reps: Start a Discharge Petition for a Clean Continuing Resolution

Lets get off our asses and get this going.....
Hi,

The Discharge Petition option is almost never used, unheard of by most of our U.S. Representatives and almost certainly unknown to most citizens. A simple reminder that this procedure exists could spark an interest, and a way out for all parties concerned.

That's why I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, which says:

"A Discharge Petition signed by a simple majority of U.S. Representatives would bypass the Speaker of the House, and would move a clean continuing resolution to a vote. Signing this MoveOn petition will remind our Representatives of the existence of this seldom used option, and their responsibility to exercise it."

Will you sign this petition? Click here:
