Arctic Refuge Showdown in U.S. Senate
Dear Mary Alice Pollard:
The future of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge was put in jeopardy
last week. Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH), Chairman of the Senate Budget
Committee, included a controversial provision to drill in the Refuge in
the Senate version of the budget bill. We are extremely disappointed by
Senator Gregg's irresponsible and destructive decision to use the budget
process to open the Refuge to drilling.
Today, Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) will introduce an amendment to
remove the Arctic drilling provision from the budget. Please take action
now! Call your Senators and urge them to support the Cantwell amendment.
Using the budget to open the Arctic Refuge is an underhanded tactic to
avoid democratic debate on this critical issue, and Sen. Cantwell's
amendment will prevent such budget trickery.
There is no time to waste - we expect the vote on Senator Cantwell's
amendment as early as TOMORROW. Please call your Senators today and urge
them to support the Cantwell amendment to strike Arctic drilling from
the Senate budget bill. You can find their phone numbers by clicking on
the link below.
Please call your Senators today to help ensure that this sneak attack on
our wildlife and one of America's last great expanses of wilderness
fails. We expect this vote to come up tomorrow or Wednesday, so there is
no time to waste - please call today.
Thank you for all that you do!
Vice President, Government Relations and External Affairs
