JUSTICE FOR FARMWORKERS CAMPAIGN
- This year’s session will end most likely at the end of this week. Which means if the Farmworker Fair Labor Practices Act is to come to the floor for a vote – it must happen immediately.
- We have 29 sponsors. (And two Republicans who have voted for it in the past). We really need to get to 32. So just one more.
Where we stand
- Call the Governor’s office: 1-518-474-8390
