Update on Dane County, Wisconsin, Resolution 35

The Health and Human Needs Committee of the Dane County Board of Supervisors will take up our resolution on Tuesday, June 29th.

The meeting will be held in the City County Building at 215 Martin Luther King Drive, in Madison. The meeting time has not been published yet, but will probably be between 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Members of the public can each speak for three minutes.

Please make every effort to attend this meeting, show your support for the resolution, and speak in favor of it. This is a critically important meeting.

If passed, this landmark resolution will focus public attention and discussion on the experiments here in the Monkey Experimentation Capital of the World.

If you cannot attend the meeting, consider making a polite phone call or sending a very polite email to the committee members. Thank the cosponsors and ask the others to support the resolution.

The county supervisors who are co-sponsoring the resolution deserve much praise for their integrity and moral courage.
