Governor Patterson opened a phone line to determine how much support there is for his directive to recognize all legal from other states and countries.
I just called and it’s really easy and it took under 5 seconds.
You calland say you support the governor’s directive.
The lady who answers the phone is very nice. She’ll ask you for your zip code and wish you a good day.
Please take five seconds to voice your support!
