We Need Your Voice! Tell Lawmakers to Put Us to Work!

The SECRC Lobby Days are a force to be reckoned with!

We had great participation at our latest Lobby Days at the Georgia state capitol (prior to the COVID-19 pandemic) to educate lawmakers about Tax Fraud. Click here to check out our video about that day:†https://youtu.be/lQsCir3UtPw

Now itís your turn!

Our next Lobby Days event is going virtual! That means you can help sway our legislators to vote on items that put carpenters to work from your car, or even your couch!

Starting TODAY, please help us get the Casino Bill passed, which would create thousands of jobs for union carpenters. We ask that all Georgia carpenters contact your state legislator and ask them to support the Casino Bill.

Time is of the essence - contact your legislator ASAP!

HOW DO I CONTACT THEM? Simply go to this website: Open States search tool. It will give you the state senator and representative for your district, as well as their contact information.†

WHAT SHOULD I SAY? Here are the nuts and bolts of what the Casino Bill is and what we want. Just tell them:†

  1. The Casino Bill allows for Casino gambling & horse racing to be on the November ballot for all GA voters to decide.
  2. Proceeds will supplement Hope Scholarship & fund health care services and health insurance coverage in GA.
  3. 4000 construction jobs for Georgia residents is a reality if this bill passes.
  4. Georgia residents need the work!
  5. We want language included saying all projects will be built by GA labor.
  6. We want language included saying supplies will be under the Georgia Grown label.

So, go to this website: Open States search tool and find your representative - then contact him as often as possible.

And, don't forget about social media. The majority of all state legislators have at least a Facebook or Twitter account. Most lawmakers communicate with constituents on these social media platforms. Simply go to Facebook or Twitter and search for your legislatorís name. And tell them to support the Casino Bill, because Georgia residents need the work!
