Just a quick update on the vote for the war supplemental funding bill.

 

There was rumor that the House might vote today but since the leadership still does not have the votes, the vote has not been scheduled.
According to Democrats.com which is keeping a running head count on likely votes:
 
"All 178 House Republicans plan to vote against the $100 billion Iraq/AfPak War Supplemental to protest $5 billion for the International Monetary Fund. That means 39 Democratic opponents could defeat the bill. 36 Democrats promised to vote no, so we only need 3 more."
 
Only three more votes and the war funding bill can be stopped.
 
Please call your representative in the Congress and urge them to vote "no" on the war supplemental.  Call  202-22....
 
Please take action now.  Defeat of the war funding bill would be a tremendous victory for the anti-war movement and will push the Congress and White House to reconsider their plans and let them know how weak support for the war is in Congress and among the people.

Hi Alice,

 

 

Send a letter to the editor today

A letter to your local editor can spread the word for a stronger clean energy bill:

Send your letter online now!

Our efforts to strengthen the clean energy bill are raising eyebrows on Capitol Hill. Just last week, climate activists like you sent more than 8,000 faxes to congressional offices in Washington.

But this is no time to let up: we have to keep pushing for a stronger bill!

Here's another way to keep pushing: send a letter to your local newspaper editors. Your representatives read the editorial pages of your hometown paper--and they pay attention to what their constituents have to say.

Your published letter can send them a strong message: passing a strong clean energy bill can transform our economy, create millions of jobs, and begin to solve the climate crisis. Send a letter to your local newspaper editor today:

http://www.1sky.org/letter

It's easy to get started: Simply enter your zip code to select one of your local newspapers. You can customize your message or use our talking points to get started. Then, encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to send their own letters!

Be sure to tell your local editors that this bill needs to be stronger with three changes:

  1. Ensure More Clean Energy for America: By increasing the renewable energy and energy efficiency standards.
  2. Hold Polluters Accountable: By restoring authority to the EPA to mandate cleaner technology for power plants.
  3. Create More Clean Energy Jobs for America: Limit giveaways to polluting industries and instead bolster green job development and protection of vulnerable communities.

You can also follow-up your letter with a call to your local paper and tell them about your letter. Send a letter to your local paper today:

Thanks again for all you're doing to pass a strong clean energy bill this year!

Liz Butler
Deputy Campaign Director, 1Sky


P.S.: After you send your letter, learn about other ways you can get louder for a stronger clean energy bill.
