has convened for its 2009 session, and NOW is the time to write to your WI
State Senators and Representatives, letting them know how YOU feel about puppy
Legislators give more
thought to issues about which they receive several letters. Your
letter might just be the one that educates a key decision-maker and
sways an important opinion!
can find contact information for your area's representatives by going to:

that you can use as starting points for your own messages.
