Child Abuse -- Federal Law

HR 4, vetoed by the President, contained some significant changes in the child abuse reporting laws. Those changes were considered friendly to fathers. The American Fathers Coalition and other father's groups helped with the language in the bill and supported the proposed changes to the law.

According to the gentleman who sent us the information which follows, that language is not in the new welfare bill being drawn up by Congress. Mr. Ohme has done a good job of listing the Senators and Representatives who have control of the bill's fate. For those of you in Texas, having Bill Archer, Tom Delay, and Dick Armey from your state gives you an unusual opportunity to influence this bill. Those from Georgia should contact Newt Gingrich as well as the House leadership.

If you are interested in child abuse issues, particularly the false abuse claims that are used as weapons in court, call your Congressman/woman and Senator today - and call the House and Senate leadership.

What follows is a series of messages from Mr. Ohme received over a 2-day period. You may wish to keep the phone numbers for future reference.

(E-mail addresses for members of Congress are available but e-mail to their office is not very effective. Phone calls, faxes, and letters are much more effective.)

It will arrive in Congress tomorrow (Friday, March 29th, 1996)

You must have everyone in your Information Tree contact every U.S. Representative and Senator to put back the original (False and\or Malicious Report )language.
