    Just called Senator Coleman's office. As I have stated before, I feel he needs a little more push, etc. He jumped on sponsorship right away, he is a Republican, he is up for re-election, etc.

    All I said was thank you for your co-sponsorship and I let him know about the congressional briefing.
