Call for our Coasts and Climate
The House of Representatives is planning to vote on three bills that would counter the Trump administration’s efforts to sell off our oceans to fossil fuel companies. The bills would ban the federal government from allowing offshore drilling in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans (H.R. 1941), as well as protect parts of the Gulf of Mexico (H.R. 205) and parts of the Arctic Ocean (H.R. 1146). These bills are a necessary first step towards protecting our oceans and coasts and halting the exploitation of public resources for fossil fuel interests.
Please help defend our coasts and climate. Call your Representative today and ask them to support these bills. Here is a script you can use:
My name is _____ and I live in zip code __________.
I am opposed to expanding offshore drilling because of the risks it poses to our oceans, climate, and coastal economies.
I am calling you to ask you to support bills that would prevent the expansion of offshore drilling.
In September, there will be a vote on the following bills H.R. 1941, H.R. 205, and H.R. 1146. Please vote in favor of these bills.
**Please remember to personalize your call with a reason why you are so concerned about offshore drilling! And if you want to do more, call your Senators and ask that they also take action.
