NOTE: State alerts for Virginia, Colorado and California were distributed on 2/26 and 3/4. If you are from one of these states but didn't receive the alert, please write us at [email protected] with your request to be added to the state distribution. The Colorado and California alerts are still active, so please visit http://www.drcnet.org/rapid/1998/3-4-1.html (Colorado) or http://www.drcnet.org/rapid/1998/3-4-2.html (California).

Our 2/26 Virginia alert can be viewed at http://www.drcnet.org/rapid/1998/2-26.html, but the bill we were most concerned with, Seeds and Stems, seems to be defeated for this year. Congratulations to Lennice Werth, Roy Scherer, Michael Crawitz and all other Virginia activists for their terrific work year after year! And many thanks to those of you on this list who helped out.
