The Name Change Bill (SB 2121) won't be considered in committee this week, so e-mails to the committee will still make a difference. We’re suggesting to focus on “accurately reflecting the Dept’s work” (well over half), rather than the “easier to find” piece. A link to language suggestions can be found below — though, please, speak for yourself and from your experience.
Specifically, Senator Nick Hacker (firstname.lastname@example.org) is still on the fence regarding SB 2121, and one thing that could sway him is contact from people outside of Fargo. If you can send a short e-mail, or if you know anyone who could contact him or the committee, it would help a lot.
There is more information on SB 2121 here, and there are language suggestions here.
