Comment: First goal

In reply to comment: Can it get out of committee .... (see in situ)

First goal

is to get Senators on the record as cosponsors. While doing that, you build public support.

Secondary goal is to get it out of committee and onto the floor; however, we know that is probably not going to happen until the Republicans control the Senate.

That doesn't mean you can't educate people while building support for the bill though.
