“Sponsors are likely to plow ahead full steam”

We’ve been advised that the sponsors of the Orphan Works bill “are likely to plow ahead full-steam.” They’re expected to “try to get the bill up to a House vote as soon as possible, maybe even this week or next,” before our opposition can affect the outcome. In short, we were told “it is paramount that the opposition scale up quickly.”
