DATE:    February 17, 2004
SUBJECT: Washington State
TO:      All Naturists

Dear Naturist,

Good news! The Naturist Action Committee is pleased to announce that Washington House Bill 2645 died in legislative committee at 5 o'clock this afternoon, Pacific Time.

House Bill 2645 proposed a significant change to the state's statute assessing punishment for indecent exposure. Currently, a second conviction under the state's indecent exposure law carries a felony penalty. HB 2645 would have amended the law to include previous convictions under any municipal indecent exposure ordinance in determining eligibility for felony punishment.

WHAT HAS NAC DONE?

  a) The Naturist Action Committee hired a team of professional legislative lobbyists to assist in this matter.
  b) NAC called for grassroots contacts with lawmakers, and the response was gratifying!
  c) NAC testified before a legislative hearing on January 28.
  d) NAC worked constantly behind the scenes, negotiating with lawmakers and law enforcement officials.

NAC THANKS YOU!

The response from you to NAC's Action Alert of January 24 was a key factor in achieving this impressive victory. Lawmakers tell us your phones calls and correspondence were focused and thoughtful. Your grass roots contacts established a powerful basis for NAC's lobbying and negotiation efforts.

Thank you for stepping forward to make a difference!

NAC NEEDS YOUR FINANCIAL HELP, TOO!

NAC's hiring of a professional lobbyist to assist with this bill proved to be a very smart thing to do. But it has also been expensive, and even while we're celebrating this important win, we must ask for your financial help.
