Her remarks to me about yesterdays meeting follow:

Short meeting – less than 5 minutes
Mr Brady
Ms. Lofgren
Mr. Ehlers

The three above made short statements about election reform being bipartisan and that they have amendments to make to the bill.

Q: Why they delayed the markup?
A: Can’t go into the details – scheduling conflicts, more work to be done on the bill.

Q: When will amendments be made public.

A: After the recess – COngress reconvenes April 16th – don’t know yet when the markup will be rescheduled. Please call again around that time to find out. We are not trying to symie citizen review of legislation that is of great concern to the voters. Still working on it. Chairwoman ultimately responsible for this – it is a moving target. Chairwoman has expressed desire to mark up the bill in full committee. We understand that there has been great interest expressed to review election law, we are doing the best we can. Submit a letter to be included in the record deadline is close of business today. We have to email to Janelle to have the letter included in the record and we must indicate we want the letter included in the record.
