We need more people opposing FOCA. We can't let FOCA be passed, at least some states are doing things to prevent it from being passed.

We sure do. And we need to watch closely the evil twin, Prevention First Act, as well as the possibility "they" will parcel bits of FOCA attaching to other bills. Sneaky is the name of their game.
