[SDCPJ] Bill to automatically register Cali. males for a future draft, act by 3/31!

Californians:
 
Please use the FCL-CA email system to send messages opposing AB 82 to the Assembly Transportation Committee. You can modify the text in their system if you want to shorten your letter or focus on a particular set of arguments. Opposition letters from organizations are especially effective since they will be listed in the report from the committee's legislative analyst--but they must be received by March 31 (hearing is April 6).
 
Attached to this is a list of talking points from Committee Opposed to Militarism and the Draft (comdsd.org) that focus on some key arguments that are being used by Selective Service to win over legislators. You can borrow from this as well.

Apply for a driver's license = Selective Service registration?
Tell the Assembly "No" on AB 82
 
Yet again the federal Selective Service System is pushing hard for a law that will force boys and young men ages 16-25 to consent to registering for Selective Service in order to apply for a California driver's license. By filling out an application to drive, males who are 18-25 years old must allow the state to forward their "identifying information" to the federal government for registration right away and those under 18 will be automatically registered when they reach 18.
 
The bill will be heard very soon in the Assembly Transportation Committee and we need to get letters of opposition in by March 31. This hearing is one of the most critical times we can weigh in, so please take action now!
 
We've prepared a sample letter with some of the most important arguments against this bill.  You can send the letter "as is" or edit it to highlight the points that are most important to you or to add your personal views. Please act now!
 
Thank you!
Friends Committee on Legislation of California
