Historic Vote Today – Let Your Voice Be Heard

from Wildlife Promise

06-26-09 Polar Bear Debate has begun in the House of Representatives on the historic American Clean Energy and Security Act. This bill is the most comprehensive climate and clean energy bill to ever make it this far in Congress. The vote will be very close and is not yet decided. Every ounce of preparation we have put into preparing for this moment has been needed and is being put to use. Our opponents are spending tons of money to scare Representatives and the public. This is as tight as they come.

There are two quick, but critical actions you can take right now to help ensure that this unprecedented legislation reaches the finish line today:

1. Even though you’ve already emailed your Congressmember, making a direct phone call to his/her office right now will ensure s/he hears just how important this legislation is to you as a constituent: http://online.nwf.org/site/R?i=023FjFbuoQgaKt45RWeCZQ.

2. For your friends, family members and followers online, encourage them to speak up today for one of the most critical pieces of legislation of our time: http://online.nwf.org/site/R?i=eedetTiY-RoSPVxxQAp33w.

Thank you for the critical role you’ve played in conservation history by helping get this legislation across the finish line today.
