Senate Bill S. 1299

Dear Lions:
Join your fellow Lions from across the nation and call your U.S. Senator(s) asking them co-sponsor the Lions Clubs International Century of Service Commemorative Coin Act! This bill would authorize the US Treasury to mint 400,000 silver coins in honor of Lions 100th anniversary in 2017 and raise $8 million to aid the visually impaired, disabled, youth and those affected by major disaster. To pass this legislation we need 290 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives and 67 in the Senate. To date and thanks to your efforts, we currently have 103 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives and 17 in the Senate.

This week Lions Clubs International is focusing on securing the additional 50 co-sponsors in the Senate and we need your help.

Call your Senator(s) now!

Below please find the name of your Senator(s) and phone number(s) along with a phone script to help you facilitate a successful call.

Thank you,

Government and Partnership Relations Department
