March 27th, 2009, 07:21 PM #1Reach Out to YOUR Representatives
It's important that we all do whatever we can to help protect the livelihoods of affiliates and the future of our industry. While some of us have the ability to go to our state capitols and speak to law makers to share our views, others don't have that luxury.
Don't feel like you're powerless - everyone can do something as small as writing a letter to your district Assembly members and senators to bring this issue to their attention. If we all take the time to write a few letters, they can't be ignored.
These links are all over the place, but it's vital that everyone know they can do something. Representatives are public servants and work for YOU. So let your voice be heard and tell them how they can help YOU as an affiliate marketer.
Find your representatives, take10 or 20 minutes to write them a letter explaining to them how the passage of this bill will negatively affect your small business, spend the 42 cents on a stamp and mail it.
We can be heard.

Is it appropriate for us to write from out of state as well?

Perhaps since you are (I assume by your location) writing with an NY frame of reference, perhaps with some "this is what happened here and this is why you shouldn't do it" anecdotes, I can't see any harm in it. I know that they definitely put more weight on actual constituents, but like I said, it certainly can't hurt.

I forgot to mention, in that case since you don't come from any one district it would be most appropriate to write to the assembly members on the revenue and taxation committee:
Assemblyman Charles M. Calderon (Committee Chair)
Assemblyman Chuck DeVore (Vice-Chair)
Assemblyman Jim Beall
Assemblyman Joe Coto
Assemblywoman Diane L. Harkey Assemblywoman Fiona Ma (Majority Whip)
Assemblyman Jim Nielsen
Assemblyman Anthony J. Portantino
Assemblywoman Lori Saldaņa (Speaker Pro Tempore)

Thanks Karen... I'm going to write her a letter right now... her district is just shy north of me but close enough!
