Our friends at American Rivers have sent out an urgent call to action, asking that conservation-minded voters call their Senators to tell them to vote YES on the America’s Great Outdoors Act.
Dear River Advocate,
This week the Senate may vote on a bill that will protect rivers across America. Call your Senators now and tell them to vote YES on S. 303, the America’s Great Outdoors Act!
The America’s Great Outdoors Act is a package of bipartisan bills that will protect land, water, and wildlife. American Rivers has made passing this legislation a high priority because it will add more than 100 miles of rivers to the Wild and Scenic River System, restore the rivers and estuaries communities depend on, and protect the lands and natural places we all benefit from. The bills contained in the America’s Great Outdoors Act have been debated and approved by committee, but still need to be passed by the full Senate before they can be signed into law.
You can help pass this river protection legislation right now! Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for your Senators’ offices. Tell them to vote YES on S. 303, the America’s Great Outdoors Act.
