    The USAAV+ Council appreciates your time and expertise in reviewing this legislation and for any comments you may provide.  Please let me know by this Friday, February 9th, if you have questions, concerns, or input for the USAAV+ Executive Committee regarding the positions they have taken on the bills, or if you have input regarding bills "Not Reviewed".  Also, please feel free to contact me at any time if I can provide additional information.
