Hi all,

I've compiled a list of links from the presentation for anyone interested.
There are the slides themselves on GitHub, the List of Submissions I found,
various statements about the bill made by companies and organizations
(great stuff to quote with #aabill), and finally references to the
independent review.

Getting in touch with local senators and other groups was our next main
plan along with reviewing the other submissions if we can and getting in
touch with any local people.
