Please take time to review monies being spent and reallocate money to this precious resource now!”

“If the people lead, the leaders will follow.” Please know that writing to elected officials is extremely important! Take a moment and let them know you want cleaner waterways!  Ask how / what they are working on currently.  Ask if they can email you a list of “how they voted”.

TAKE ONE MOMENT AND DO IT!

How a letter you write may sound…

Dear Governor,
As a conservation-minded American, I call upon you to use
the power of your office to protect our water, air and soil from
relentless efforts of powerful special interests, which seem to
ignore our important vital natural resources. Please resist the attempts to
permanently disable the ability to use the rule of law to protect
our most cherished environmental treasures. The rule of
law is the most effective tool we have to safeguard and
improve the environment. Landmark laws like the
Endangered Species Act, The Clean Water Act, Clean Drinking Water Act
and the National Environmental Policy Act must remain intact and vigorously enforced.  Please find this matter urgent and change eminent.
Respectfully,
Your name

And do not forget your address or they will not consider you a “real” person!

 

Ask your member of Congress to support The Clean Water Restoration Act and uphold the Clean Water Act

It is important.
