Ugent H.R. 146

Recommended Posts

We still have time! Make your call!:)

We want to thank you for taking action in the past using our Save The Trails letter generators to preserve access to your public lands. We thought you would want to know the Omnibus Act S.22 has Risen From The Grave as we predicted it would. Thankfully the AMA and Blue Ribbon Coalition have discovered this in time for you to take action to kill the reincarnation of this extremely bad bill, now in the form of HR 146. It was just voted in the Senate and Passed 77-20, however it will now be rushed to the House for a vote by Congress without debate. With your help It can be defeated in Congress. So it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSMAN NOW.

With such a short time frame for action, the best way to tell your Congressman to vote "No" on H.R. 146 is to call. Click here to get the phone number for your Congressman. Enter your zip code in the "Find Your Officials" box and click on the name of your Representative (Congressman).

If you have called please Call Again, If you have not yet please Call your Congressman NOW!!

It only takes a few minutes but makes all the difference

If you would prefer to contact your Legislators with e-mail, you may contact your Legislators by clicking here. The AMA has a created a pre-written a letter for your use.

What is HR146? Until recently it was a one page bill regarding the Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Battlefield Acquisition Grant Program to which legislators have now attached their failed 1300 page S.22 Omnibus Act, containing over 160 sepearate other bills. These newly attached bills have nothing to do with the Revolutionary War, but prove this to be legislation in it's lowest form.

Because of your calls many legislators are now questioning supporting this bill which will cost $10 billion and increases our dependency on foreign energy in a time of economic crisis, while locking up millions of acres from the public.

Immediate action is critical to help keep 2.1 million acres of public land open to all forms of recreation. Please call your Representative and tell everyone you can to do the same.

Your calls can help convince every Congressman to vote "No" on H.R. 146!

Please make the CALL NOW click here to find the number or learn more

You can call anytime of the day or night and leave a message. If their voicemail is full please call back during office hours.

Thanks to AMA and Blue Ribbon for keeping track of this slippery Bill

Please forward this alert to anyone who cares about our economy, environment and preserving public access.

I think the $10 billion dollar price tag alone would be enough to kill it in this economy. :)
