Transcript of January 2013 BOD Legislative Update: DREAM Act

Federal DREAM Act
United States Student Association
Bill Gets Introduced
Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) will likely reintroduce the DREAM Act.

Representative Howard Berman (D-CA) lost is re-election. Representative Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) will likely be the member to re-introduce the bill in the current Congress. However, this is speculation based off his strong support and consistent demand for passage of the bill. Representative Hank Johnson (D-GA) may also introduce a new bill.
Bill Referred to Committee
Important Committees
This is an opportunity for the board to organize and take ownership of our campaign.
Example of things that we need to do:
OpEd's, LTE's, in-district lobby visits.

We must be organizing on the ground or this bill will not get out of committee. It needs to at least get out of the Judiciary Committee.

In order to move a bill we need to build bipartisan support and we need to focus on getting Republican members of Congress to support this issue.
