I'll help in whatever manner I am able to. My agency is probably going to
sign...I'll be out of town after 12/21. I think the deadline was set up
exactly to produce the end of the year pressure that we are all commenting
on. Has anyone thought about asking ETA to extend the current system until
Jan 31?? ...I suspect they want to get this done before a new Congress comes
in...has anyone thought about talking to their delegation or is this too
esoteric to try??-Mike Milwee, DC

DOL said changes to the contract before the deadline was probably not
possible; most states seem resigned to signing as is with the hope of change
later.  The only alternative I see is to send a team of attorneys to
negotiate on behalf of the states concerning the items favored by the states
in the Webinar and the other issues which have been raised.  The trip to DC
would have to be next week or two weeks at the latest.  Amendments could be
drafted and sent to the states before the January 1 deadline.  I would
propose Jane P from Penn., Paul from NY, Mike from Utah, and Mike from DC,
if they are willing to serve and their states are willing to send them.
This is the best I can come up with, certainly open to other ideas??  We
need to express opinions and decide on a course of action.  Thanks, Joe
