When I met with 65 offices in DC from June 22nd to July 3rd, I could tell that our message was resonating. But in meetings in DC this week, it was obvious that a shift was occurring. Key staffers were more willing to say that their bosses were considering changing their previous position and going against H.R.9. Representatives who were co-sponsors of The Innovation Act were now undecided! Then, today, I got the word:
H.R.9 is being pulled from consideration on the Floor until after the Summer Session.
Considering that this very same bill passed the House 325-91 a year and a half ago, this is a MAJOR WIN! It is something that everyone with experience in DC said couldn’t be done. Well, we did it!
Thank you to all of you for your support and help in this effort. This is a huge victory, and I salute all of you.
We will have to gear up now to fight what is coming in the Senate. But winning in the House puts us in a much stronger position.
Thank you again, and I’ll keep you informed about our next move.
