The most effective option is to get an appointment and meet with him/her personally at his/her local offcie and convince him/her to cosponsor this bill. They may or may not agree with you but they are very approachable because they want to hear from their constituents.

emails, tweets, online petitions, facebook posts etc do not really convince for sponsoring. One has to get involved with the office in person and set up regular meetings.

Hail hail..

Is there a safe number of sponsors which will ensure success of this bill?

Read on another forum. If a Bill passes House & Senate it could take any of these numbers.

Average: 263.57 days
Median: 215 days

This is not statistical or mathematical problem. Some bills take many years worth of work and nothing happens. That means for those years, until just before that bill passes, statistically the chance of success is zero because that bill never passed before, that too for many years. But all of a sudden, one fine day the bill passes the Congress.

It just means one thing. Stats only apply to domains that are logical. There is no linear logic or pattern to law making or Congress. So the numbers that you posted, average/median/mode/mean/range none of these are relevant to this subject.

Those websites are created so that people can crowdsource their opinion and rate bills. It is easy to pull in bill data and create such websites. Then they overlay online petitions on top of this. Then they try and collect your email ID at the very least. If not, then the website traffic is good for display advertising money.

You always need to read which company owns a website you browse. It does not take much time. I am surprised that this community is majority IT people and they still think these websites are genuine.

Actually, it was two new co-sponsors.

The big one is Cathy MacMoris Rogers who is the #4 Republican in the house.

She will probably be very influential in getting this bill a vote on the house.

IV has a link on the front page of their FB page thanking her for her support. People should like that post and add a line thanking her for her support. It will help the bill get a vote.

The congressmen/women in the constituency around me have agreed to support this bill, but I was wondering what I could do to convince other politicians in other constituencies? (short of visiting them)?

Will a (physical) letter, or letters be taken seriously? I'm encouraging my friends to go visit as well.
