On 6/19, ADAPT members stopped by to check with Amanda about why there may be a hold up regarding Cox being added as a cosponsor. Amanda was indignant about the visit and said that they agreed to be on the bill long ago and soon after they were first asked and ADAPT keeps coming asking when they would be on the list of cosponsors. She said she could go and print the email to Amy Bos, that she has previously provided to ADAPT. The ADAPT members didn't want to create further annoyance so we said perhaps there was a miscommunication and got out of their hair very quickly.

Hi Amanda,

I just tried calling your office and spoke with Lucine. She stated that you were away from your desk and your voicemail wasn't yet set up, but I left a message for you with her and am also following up with this email.

My name is Leah Smith and I am with ADAPT. ADAPT has recently sent you information about the Disability Integration Act (HR 555), but we have not heard back from you and Congressman Cox has not signed onto the Disability Integration Act yet. ADAPT will be in town next week and we would prefer to stop by your office to thank Congressman Cox for his support.

Please feel free to call me back at 806.239.5582 or respond to this email to confirm that you have received this message and our emails requesting Congressman Cox to cosponsor the Disability Integration Act.

Called and spoke with Lucinee who stated that Lucinne who stated that Amanda Stayton was the correct person that we needed to speak to about this, but that she was away from her desk and her voicemail was not set up at this time. She promised to pass along the information about the Disability Integration Act and I told her I would follow up with an email.

On 1/2/19 E Jones emailed the campaign email:

"Congratulations on your victory in the recent election and welcome to Congress. I am writing on behalf of the Disability Community to ask you to become an original cosponsor of the Disability Integration Act. The Disability Integration Act is bicameral, bipartisan legislation that guarantees the rights of disabled Americans to live in freedom by ensuring our right to receive services in our own homes. If you have any questions about the bill I am happy to answer them or you are welcome to look at our web site:

We are holding an event in the U.S. Capitol on January 15th to celebrate the bill???s reintroduction. We would like to announce you as an original cosponsor of the bill at the event. Would you please confirm your intention to be an original cosponsor on the legislation? We would be grateful for your leadership in helping ensure that all disabled Americans have the right to live in freedom."
