When House Bill 187, the Gag Act, was rumored to be brought to committee hearing on June 4th, you answered the call and let the members of the House Economic Development, Banking, Insurance, and Commerce Committee know that we were not going to stand by and watch them destroy our freedom of speech.
Citizens from all over the First State made phone calls and signed our Stop the Delaware Gag Act petition.
The only way to ensure the Gag Act will not become law this year is for the bill sponsor to have it STRICKEN from the record.
Call the author of this attack on the 1st Amendment at the following numbers and DEMAND that he have House Bill 187 STRICKEN from Delaware’s 147th General Assembly.
Then call Speaker Pete Schwartkopf at 302-744-4351 and urge him to stop sitting on the sidelines regarding this legislation.
If he truly doesn’t support it, he would get his caucus under control and see that it is STRICKEN immediately.
Finally, call the members of the House EDBIC Committee today and reinforce that we expect them to TABLE House Bill 187.

So far, they have delayed bringing the Gag Act to a committee hearing, but that can change on a moment’s notice.
Make sure those committee members know you are watching to see that House Bill 187 is TABLED in the House Economic Development, Banking, Insurance, and Commerce Committee.
The 1st Amendment is under attack and no other fight can be as important.
If they infringe on our right to speak, there will be no fighting for our freedoms in the future.

P.S. Your efforts have delayed the committee hearing on House Bill 187, the Delaware Gag Act, but we need to keep up the pressure and urge the Democrat caucus to remove their attack on the 1st Amendment.
Then call the members of the EDBIC Committee and urge them to TABLE THE BILL if it is brought to a committee vote. You can find their contact information by CLICKING HERE.
