Sample Calling Script

“Hi, my name is _____ and I am a North Carolina resident.  I am calling today in support of (House Bill 102/Senate Bill 85) and it is my understanding that it has been referred to the Rules Committee but has not yet been put on the agenda. I would like to ask (insert name of person you are calling) to put this bill on the agenda so that it can move forward. I believe that this bill is a great opportunity for North Carolina to demonstrate its commitment to equal treatment of women under the law. Would you please deliver that message? Thank you.”
