Hi,

This is the word on the eddyline as of yesterday:

According to someone definitely in the know it is very important for those of us opposed to the proposed Hydropower 'Improvement' Act to make a comment directly to Senator Maria Cantwell.

This takes literally one minute:

Hyperlink is here:    http://www.cantwell.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/email-maria

I filed my comment under 'Energy' .

And the suggested comment was:


I oppose S. 1236, the Hydropower Improvement Act.

--------------

Apparently it is really important to do this.  Please share this info with any groups you belong to who also want to oppose this bill. 

THANKS!!



It's all fun and games until someone loses a paddle.

THANKS you guys!!

I just heard from someone in the know that our pols are more likely to pay attention after they have received 10 letters about it.  I'm sure that's not a magic number but it's a data point and also a very small number considering how many people read stuff on PP...  If everyone who read the Upper Upper Cispus thread wrote to Senator Cantwell I think it would make a huge difference.

(That was a good thread, IMO.  I'm just saying, about a billion people read it.)

The Senate Energy and Natural Resources (What Is Left Of Them) Committee is chaired by Lisa Murkowski, R from Alaska.  Where they want to put the world's 2nd tallest dam on the Susitna River.  I think there's cause for concern.
