AMA National Action Alert!

Omnibus Public Lands Bill to be Voted on Tomorrow!

Call your Representatives NOW!

The American Motorcyclist Association has been asking everyone to contact their Representatives to vote "No" on S. 22, the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009. After tracking the legislation and working with members of congress and their staff, we have been alerted that the legislation is set for a vote tomorrow, March 11th.

S. 22 will be coming up on the suspension calendar, meaning it needs more than 144 Congressman to vote "No" to be defeated. Now is when every contact counts.

With such a short time frame for action, the best way to tell your Representative to vote "No" on S. 22 is to call. Click Hereto get the phone number for your member of congress. Enter your zip code in the "Find Your Officials" box and click on the name of your Representative.

You can also find more information on the bill and some good reasons to help persuade your Congressman to vote "No" by clicking here.

Today is the day to act to help keep 2.1 million acres of public land from being designated as Wilderness. Please call your Representatives and tell everyone you can to do the same.

Tomorrow, every member of congress must know to vote "No" on S. 22!

Defeated!!!!!!!!:):banghead:

The House rejected an amended omnibus package of more than 160 public lands, water and resources bills despite a last-minute change designed to ease concerns about the bill.

By a vote of 282-144, the House failed to pass S. 22 (pdf) under a suspension of the rules, which barred any amendments from being added to the bill but also required a two-thirds majority for passage.
