Minnesota Residents, We Need Your Support

Dear Northern Star Scouting Volunteer,

We are currently working to pass a legislative bill that would allow youth organizations, such as ourselves, to distribute paper fliers in the schools and we need your help in a grassroots campaign for support of the bill.

We are at a critical time and are asking for your support in reaching out to your elected officials in support of the Youth Development Organizations: Informational Access Bill

              Senate Bill        SF 630

              House Bill         HF1523  

We are asking that you please reach out to your own local representatives and ask them to encourage Senator Roger Chamberlain and Representative Ruth Richardson to support the youth development organizations informational access bill.  Please contact your elected officials by Monday, March 29. 

You can find contact information for your elected officials at www.leg.state.mn.us 

When you email or call your elected officials, start by saying that you are one of their constituents. Be ready to answer basic questions about the bill if they or their aides ask you about the bill or about Scouting.

Attached (bottom of this page) you will find letters from John Andrews and me asking for support.  We are sharing these, along with a copy of the flier we have been utilizing, as examples of your talking points for the bill or letters you could send.  A copy of the bill is also attached (bottom of this page).

If you would like to reach out to Sen. Chamberlain or Rep. Ruth Richardson, directly to ask for support, here is their contact information.

Sen. Roger Chamberlain is the Chair of the Senate E-12 Finance and Policy Committee.
