Dear Supporter of Women's Rights,
NOW-NYS would like to thank you for your support of the Anti-Shackling Bill. This bill has been passed by the NYS Assembly and NYS Senate. It is now on its way to Governor Paterson's desk.   
The Governor promised that he would sign the bill and that he was willing to work out any technical issues with the bill afterwards.
The bill was sent to the Governor's desk yesterday. He has 10 days from yesterday to sign the bill.  Please call to thank the Governor for his public support and to urge him to sign the bill TODAY: 518-474-8390.
You may also email the Governor by clicking on the "Take Action" link above. Send him a personal email. I am sure he would love to hear from you.
