To:  CNY Solidarity members and supporters:
Please find below the weekly legislative ACTION ALERTS from Indivisible NY24 and our legislative action teams.

Today (Feb 25) 

Please contact John Katko today to ask that he sign onto the congressional resolution opposing the President’s Emergency Powers action, that is likely to go to the House for a vote tomorrow (Tuesday).   This is an attempt to usurp constitutional power from Congress.  Trump is not above the law.  No emergency exists, and nothing about this has been discussed at Homeland Security Committee, of which Mr. Katko is a member.

Katko’s phone numbers:  315-423-5657 (Syracuse), 315-2253-4068 (Auburn), or 202-225-3701 (DC).
