    Plus, Saul Schniderman on how sales clerk Leura Collins’ decision to buy some chicken led to the Weingarten Rights.
    Last week's show: (2/9): John Sayles on “Matewan,” “Yellow Earth” and more. This is already one of our most popular shows; check it out and you'll hear why!

    HOW TO CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVES
    To find your senators' and representative's phone numbers, you will find a congressional directory on our website www.actnat.com. Look under Contact Congress and use the first drop down tab, simply click on your state. Or you can call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for your senators' and/or representative's office.
    Remember that telephone calls are usually taken by a staff member, not the member of Congress. Ask to speak with the aide who handles the issue about which you wish to comment.
    After identifying yourself, tell the aide you would like to leave a brief message, such as: "Please tell Senator/Representative (Name) that I support/oppose (S.___/H.R.___)."
    You will also want to state reasons for your support or opposition to the bill. Ask for your senators' or representative's position on the bill. You may also request a written response to your telephone call.
      
    Tips On Writing Congress

    The letter is the most popular choice of communication with a congressional office. If you decide to write a letter, this list of helpful suggestions will improve the effectiveness of the letter:  NOTE: it is best to fax the letter rather then use the US Mail Service.
    1. Your purpose for writing should be stated in the first paragraph of the letter. If your letter pertains to a specific piece of legislation, identify it accordingly, e.g., House bill: H. R. ____, Senate bill: S.____.
    2. Be courteous, to the point, and include key information, using examples to support your position.
    3. Address only one issue in each letter; and, if possible, keep the letter to one page.

    Addressing Correspondence:
    To a Senator:
    The Honorable (full name)
    __(Rm.#)__(name of) Senate Office Building
    United States Senate
    Washington, DC 20510

    Dear Senator ____name___:
      
    To a Representative:
    The Honorable (full name)
    __(Rm.#)__(name of) House Office Building
    United States House of Representatives
    Washington, DC 20515

    Dear Representative ___name___
    Note:  When writing to the Chair of a Committee or the Speaker of the House, it is proper to address them as:
    Dear Mr. Chairman or Madam Chairwoman:
    Dear Madam Speaker or Mr. Speaker:
    Tip On E-mailing Congress
    Generally, the same guidelines apply as with writing letters to Congress. You will also find the e-mail address for your senators and representative on the ACT Web site at the Contact Congress Tab.
