At approximately 2:00pm today, AAPD (American Association of People with Disabilities) received word that 120 of the 500 ADAPT activists from across the nation had been arrested in and outside the House Rayburn Office Building on Capitol Hill. Arrests were made in the offices of Rep. John Dingell (D-MI) and Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) as well as inside a hearing room of Rayburn and outside Rayburns entrance. Arrest processing is expected to continue into the night.
ADAPT activists were in Rayburn in efforts to have Reps. Dingell and Barton set a hearing date on the calendar for the Energy and Commerce Committee for the Community Choice Act and to have them sign-on as co-sponsors of the legislation.
Leaders of ADAPT met last week with the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and are scheduled to meet tomorrow with the Republican National Committee (RNC) all in efforts to help move the Community Choice Act through Congress.
