March 2013 issue of Chicago's Fraternal Order of Police [union] newsletter states that this legislation was introduced by Chicago Lodge #7: "...By now, all members should have received a letter from me, along with a listing of State Representatives and Senators... I urge each and every one of you to make an appointment with your Representative and/or Senator to make your voice heard. We are an organization with over 17,000 members. We can greatly influence which bills get passed if a majority of our membership makes their voice heard. Make sure your Representative and Senator understand that your vote is with your pension."

[Take notes. That is how things get done. Face to face and in numbers.]
