OK I went to the capital and I walk in and first thing I forgot how big that building as in how confusing that building ask. Has there isn't an X there's a section they built on after the original and if you're looking for specific remember with four digits it's in the enix now I know that. But I couldn't find any elevators so I'd climbed a lot of stairs that day and when it finally showed up to the congressman's office I would slightly impaired because I haven't yeah out. I make the ones you just ask somebody I did eventually ask somebody when it finally got to the third floor walked all the way around the third floor and couldn't find. All of his number. I find skit where. What we're the rooms before and of course. Let me go security guard I'm sure reached through his guy I'm playing and yes. But I eventually did find the bell. I like he's said that now you know lot about the ally now I'm never rebounded the sky and you go on their rights don't get it. This tour. So we go and there's a whole lot of waiting. Real fassel's remind what you call us here's why you were there I was there to testify my support officially for a bill that's coming up for vocal EB 2259. And it is a bill that will give a tax credit to parents of stillborn. To alleviate burial costs medical costs.

Delivers her speech or done the chairwoman of the committee. On this the taxation committee so this is the first big step of this bill okay she is crying rumored. Wow good job. And very keen reasonable thing cry. Your best but she is crying. Okay and we're done we are not present for the vote okay. We find out after we go on a hallway and were staying there in the congress and their world shaking hands thing our goodbyes and stuff like that meant that somebody another congressman walks up to Los in the hallway shakes your hand and he goes. I didn't think you guys are gonna pass. And congratulations. Good that passed unanimously want. Line now you know. Kenya on the cell anyway they'll why didn't even think it was gonna pass so look cause it's a tax credit. So late we'll look at it as like. Wall why wouldn't this pass a corpse. Well they have to look at it as I understand why this has that happened it is going to be a loss of income well hey that may and everything. Donated 2600 stillborn in California every year right so if you do the math and then factor in how many people would never even apply for it brain it's gonna be around two million dollar loss to the state OK okay that they passed unanimously why. Well first step the second step is it goes to the house floor and then it becomes the bill they asked if I'd be willing to come back to that I said FDA I would. And on top of that till they also said this word gets to a party thing the big congressman who wrote the bill the Republican may and they can't get a Democrat to support the bill book as everyone hates everyone right now right so I said well listen I sit.
