DOPA passes House

From ALA's Washington Office:

House of Representatives Passes Deleting Online Predators Act

Yesterday, the US House of Representatives passed the amended H.R. 5319, the Deleting Online Predators Act (DOPA), by a vote of 410-15. We believe the legislation will now go to the Senate, which may or may not have time to vote on this before their session ends for the year. In the meantime, you can still help out:

If your Representative was one of the ones listed below, please email them a quick thank you for opposing DOPA. Representatives who voted against DOPA:

John Conyers (Detroit, MI)
Raul Grijalva (Tuscon, AZ)
Hinchey (Saugerties, NY)
Honda (San Jose, CA)
Kucinich (Cleveland, OH)
Lee (Oakland, CA)
Zoe Lofgren (San Jose, CA)
McDermott (Seattle, WA) Payne (Newark, NJ)
Schakowsky (Evanston, IL)
Scott (Newport News, VA)
Serrano (Bronx, NY)
Stark (Fremont, CA)
Watson (Los Angeles, CA)
Woolsey (Petaluma, CA)

No word yet on strategy for the Senate vote on this bill. In the meantime, I should call and thank my rep.
