Here's a sample message to send them -
I am contacting you to help kill HB 1201.
I believe that the disputed matters pertaining to the Ceded Lands can be resolved in a fair, just, and honest manner.
But the legislation OHA is suggesting is not legitimate.
Once the Settlement Agreement is nullified, I support 1) a full and complete inventory of the Ceded Lands, 2) an audit of all gross revenues generated by the Ceded Lands, 3) beneficiary consultation with all stakeholders, and 4) an OHA audit.
Please vote "NO" on HB1201.
