Tegbar met with advisors of key U.S. Congressmen on African affairs

December 21st, 2005

Representatives of Tegbar civic group in Washington DC met and discussed H.R. 4423 with advisors of Congressmen Donald Payne and Chris Smith yesterday at their offices in Capitol Hill. Congressmen Smith’s advisors told Tegbar that the bill has so far only two sponsors, but needs at least 21 to comfortably pass through Congress.

Tegbar representatives have been advised to try to get more sponsors for the bill. Tegbar’s Congressional Relations Team will hold a meeting tomorrow night to discuss strategies on how to help get the bill pass. We appreciate any suggestion or ideas on this matter.
