Support Youth Information Access Bill

Dear Northern Star Scouting Volunteer,                                                                         


We are currently working to pass a legislative bill that would allow youth organizations, such as ourselves, to distribute paper fliers in the schools and we need your help in a grassroots campaign for support of the bill.

 We are at a critical time and are asking for your support in reaching out to your elected officials in support of the Youth Development Organizations: Informational Access Bill

               Senate Bill        SF 630

              House Bill         HF1523  


We are asking that you please reach out to your own local representatives and ask them to encourage Senator Roger Chamberlain and Representative Ruth Richardson to support the youth development organizations informational access bill.  Please contact your elected officials by Monday, March 29. 

 You can find contact information for your elected officials at 

 When you email or call your elected officials, start by saying that you are one of their constituents.  Be ready to answer basic questions about the bill if they or their aides ask you about the bill or about Scouting.


Attached you will find letters from John Andrews and me asking for support.  We are sharing these, along with a copy of the flier we have been utilizing, as examples of your talking points for the bill or letters you could send.  A copy of the bill is also attached.
