Updates from the Rivenburg family (Jason’s Law)

by Truckdriversnews, under Jason's Law

On June 27th we traveled to Lake George, New York to take part in the Convoy for the Kids. Many people stopped by and signed our petition. As in New Jersey, some of the people were not aware of what Jason’s Law is. Most of them gave us the opportunity to explain what it was and why we are fighting for it. We encouraged them to contact their legislators and to let them know how vital this legislation is.

We would like to thank all of the people who donated to the Convoy. Without their generous donations, this event would not have been the success it was. Special thanks to Charlie Clayburn, Bill Sutton, and the other members of Truckers and Citizens for including us.

The winner of the 50/50 raffle was the sales representative from â��Ball Buster Polish.” The winning ticket number was 781528. A total of $102 was collected making his winnings $51. Congratulations!

Congressman Paul Tonko took the time from his extremely busy schedule to come to Lake George at night. As he mingled among the truckers and others he brought them up-to-date on his proposed legislation. With the Energy Bill behind them, they will soon be concentrating on the Transportation Bill. Jason’s Law is among the items to be discussed. His staff in Washington is again working at getting co-sponsors. Congressman Tonko said that when he explains Jason’s Law to his fellow Congressmen, they say it makes sense. This is a good sign. We still need to continue getting the word out and contacting our legislators. Remember, once this gets through on the federal level, we need to make sure that our state legislators are ready to apply for these grants. We still have a lot of work ahead of us.
