On ALPA National Board, haven't verified yet but definately important if true!

We have just been informed by our Congressional allies that ALPA is negotiating with Senators on the Senate Commerce and Transportation Committee who are opposed to arming pilots in an effort to reach a "compromise" solution.

THE LAST TIME THIS OCCURRED, ALPA'S DEAL RESULTED IN A HOUSE BILL WITH A 2% LIMIT TO ARMED PILOTS AND A 2 YEAR TEST PROGRAM WHOSE FATE WAS DETERMINED BY THE TSA DIRECTOR.

We fought a hard battle to eliminate the restrictions given away during ALPA's negotiations and prevailed with an unrestricted program in a landslide victory.

I don't want to have to fight like that again! THERE IS NO REASON TO COMPROMISE!!! We have a solid 65-70 votes in the Senate for the FULL program.

CALL YOUR ALPA REPS IMMEDIATELY AND TELL THEM NOT TO BARGAIN AWAY ANY PROVISION OF S.2554!

We have been told that Sen. Hollings is preparing a bill for presentation (called "marking up a bill") and that he's looking to put forth a watered down bill to derail our efforts. Don't allow ALPA to be a party to this!

Hollings is a Turd Merchant!

I just don't get these darned democrats! Hollings thinks we want to go charging out of the cockpit to gun down the terrorists and is leading others to believe that. They don't realize that we want the guns to blas whoever is breaking INTO the cockpit as a last line of DEFENSE before the interceptor missile!!!

Hollings' worst transgression is he won't let the poor widow of Flt. 93 CA testify before his podunk committee. Get 'im O'Reilly!!
