        I believe Alan Dechert said it in his original letter alerting us to
the problems with the bill. However, I'll let him speak for himself.

I tried to write to the Peace Team before and got no where with them. I
hope what you wrote helps.
I did not know that Holt is not allowing any amendments or revisions - I
had not heard that before.
Can you send me a reference for that?

bill is not allowing any amendments or revisions. Despite the repeatedly
demonstrated need for it, there is no actual scientific audit required in
the bill. Finally, local authority for running elections is removed and
placed in the hands of a small group called the EAC. These are appointed by
the president and answer only to him. Again, I must ask you to please stop
advocating for this extremely flawed bill which just possibly could make
things worse! Senator Feinstein of California is supposed to be putting
forward something a lot better and is normally open to amendments.
