We send out news flashes to interested parties to inform and educate about new legislation and current issues. It is one of the ways we can inform and hear back from you. We ask for your thoughts and opinions on the many topics brought forward to the PBFC.

To do this, we need some minimal information about you so that you can receive email news and participate in surveys.

PBFC's 'Stay Informed' List

* indicates required


The fastest and best means of serving our mission is email or snail mail. A mailed or emailed opinion has a lot more impact on politicians and bureaucrats than one of us telling them about your opinions. Your letters and emails are effective tools in politics. So, no long winded chats with one of us, just clear letters and emails stating your position and/or concerns help a lot. Your emails will be answered. Please feel free to share them. We need to know what is on your mind.

PBFC needs your financial support. Although all PBFC leaders volunteer their time and expertise and operate with lean and mean expenses, there are hard costs such as paying our representatives in Sacramento and producing the high visibility events that keep PBFC top of mind in the State Capitol. Every dollar works hard and we thank you for your financial support. Send your check to:
