1. Let them know that you appreciate
the freedom our servicemembers provide and that our servicemembers should no longer be denied a Constitutional right (First
Amendment) that is granted to every citizen, incarcerated criminal and illegal immigrant.
2. Ask them to cosponsor the bill. A large number of cosponsors will indicate a high level of interest
and will encourage the House and Senate to bring the issue to a vote sooner.

Last action: Jun 24, 2009: Read twice and
referred to the Committee on the Judiciary. Bill status:
This bill never became law. This bill was proposed in the 111th
session of Congress which ended 2010. Sessions of Congress last two years, and at the end of each session all proposed
bills and resolutions that haven't passed are cleared from the books. Members often reintroduce bills that did not
come up for debate under a new number in the next session.
If your Senator(s) is/are on the Senate Committee of the Judiciary, please
let them know IMMEDIATELY that you support the rights of our servicemembers and their families to legally redress the government
in cases of medical malpractice.
