    Dear Speaker Pelosi:

    On behalf of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR) and undersigned individual organizations, we are writing to ask you to bring H.R. 157, the “District of Columbia House Voting Rights Act,” (“DC VRA”) to a vote as soon as possible.  Before Congress begins to consider an economic recovery package and many other proposals that so greatly affect our nation’s future, it should assure the citizens of Washington, DC and Utah that Congress is committed to giving them a fair and equal voice.

    Re:      SCHIP Reauthorization

    The League of Women Voters urges you to support reauthorization of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) when it comes to the House floor for a vote.  In the years since Congress first passed SCHIP, the program has provided access to health care coverage to six million low-income children.  However, there are still over nine million children who remain uninsured.
