HR 550 Gains Traction, Faces Resistance

Sometimes, all you need to do is ask. Aids to Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) informed Cambridge resident Carolyn Fuller and other citizen-lobbyists the Lynch would likely sign onto HR 550 by the end of the day. Lynch supported the bill, they said, but he had uninentionally let the question of his co-sponsorship "slip" and he would remedy that oversight right away.

On the other hand, some House members were unfamiliar with the bill and the various attempts to remedy e-voting problems. Staffers for Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT), for example, gave Lobby Days contributors a welcome reception and heard them out but, as one lobbyist put it, "seemed oblivious" to the issue.
