Wouldn't be surprised if information about it is being suppressed.

Haven't been happier!
We've seen alot change for the worse since leaving. What started at a 1 year excursions turned out to be the best move we ever made.

You won't stop this bill, they distract you with these bills you are fighting individually...
If it was stopped they would wrap it in a different bundle and pass it anyway.

What your doing is important, but stop fighting each new Bill, and start fighting the real problem.
