Three more members of the Senate, Richard Durbin, Bill Nelson, and Debbie Stabenow, joined as co-sponsors of the Senate version of the TVPRA, bringing the total number of Senators to 24! Better still, the bill was placed on the legislative calendar. The finish line is in site, but there a bit more to go. Keep nagging your senator if he or she is is one of the 76 Senators who, for reasons unknown, have chosen to ignore the problem of slavery in our age! Those in Iowa reading this or hearing about it might well ask both our senators and all 5 of our Representatives why they ignore this problem, despite the court record which demonstrates the need for the TVPRA.
