Just so you know, we (meaning the ARIN board and staff, as well as those 
of the other RIRs, ISOC, ICANN, and the IETF) are actively engaged at 
preventing this badness.  

Nonetheless, if any of you (ARIN members) are large companies with 
government affairs offices and government affairs lawyers/lobbyists, 
please consider putting them in touch with me or John Curran, so we can 
let them know how they can help.  Several of ARIN's largest members, 
notably Verizon, are already engaged on our side of this fight.
