More proof that not all ACs are bad. We could use a few more like you.
I wrote, called, signed, and e-mailed. I yelled at my computer screen, and took aggression out on the keyboard. I enjoyed the coverage, and all of the information from within. I got very little work done today, but such is live. At least it was constructive rather than simple clicking around reddit.
After my I sent my e-mail through the house.gov website to Amodei regarding this bill I saw that he became a co-sponser. Two weeks later I get back a generic letter that did not even talk about the bill. It was more like a statement of I'm to busy to talk to the people I am supposed to represent. I called his office here in Reno, NV.

Dear Mr. *******:
As I settle into my new role as a Member of Congress, I thought I would contact you to make sure you had my appropriate contact information and let you know that I have received your thoughts on issues affecting the Silver State and our great nation. We are working to respond to your specific requests in a timely manner.
As you may know, I was recently elected to the United States House of Representatives in a special election on Tuesday, September 13th, 2011. Over the past month, I have opened my offices in both Washington DC and Nevada. In addition, I have held scores of meetings with constituents across northern Nevada on a variety of issues. When in Washington, I have been working on legislation to increase job creation by voting to remove onerous regulations on small businesses, voting to increase private sector investment in the economy, and voting to repeal government mandates that prevents the hiring of new workers. I am also pleased to tell you I have introduced my first two pieces of legislation that both involve ensuring our public lands are protected and managed by Nevadans first.
I am excited to have to the opportunity to represent our state as I work within Congress to get the country headed in the right direction. It is time to get Nevadans back to work, repair the economy, and reduce Washington spending. One of my major priorities is to support a proposal that will control our massive deficit in order to not leave the spending mistakes of this generation on the shoulders of our children and grandchildren.
For more information on how to contact me or get updates on my latest activities please visit www.Amodei.house.gov or at facebook.com/MarkAmodeiNV2. This site contains up to date information on pending legislation and current events both in Washington DC and Nevada.
