Please introduce's "One Subject at a Time Act" (OSTA). You can find the text of the legislation here: It's not right that our legislatures so often have to choose between voting yes for a piece of legislation which also contains something they very much disagree with, or voting no and not being able to pass a very important piece of legislation because some other junk has gotten thrown in there.

It's time to give you, our legislature, the power to only pass legislation on one topic at a time. It's ridiculous that some legislators try, and succeed at, forcing their unpopular bills to get passed by stuffing them in with something very important which they know will pass.

If OSTA gets passed it will put an end to foolishness like the "REAL ID Act", something wich was apposed by the majority of Congress and we the people, getting passed only because it was attached to a more popular bill, the "Emergency, Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, the Global War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief." (May, 2005).

I want you to be able to vote on only what you truly believe to be good legislation rather than being forced to approve bills that you would rather not see pass in order to get something important done.

Sincerely in Liberty,

Christopher D. Osborn

(My name, U.S. Street address, and email were here in the letter my congressmen received)

That's all for tonight. I hope someone out there is reading and agreeing. God bless from Vineyard Haven, MA.
