Co-Sponsor H.R. 4426 – the Sustainable Energy Development Reform Act!

            The Trump Administration and Interior Secretary Zinke have made one thing abundantly clear: when it comes to America’s public lands, the hopes and dreams of oil, gas, and coal executives come first. On Day 1, they began taking a wrecking ball
to Obama Administration policies that balanced energy development with conservation, protected public health, encouraged stakeholder participation in energy decisions, held companies accountable, managed public land for multiple uses, and planned for and attempted
to mitigate the effects of human-induced climate change. America’s most important natural places are under direct attack from the dirty energy agenda of Donald Trump and his fossil fuel cronies.

Cosponsor the Tribal Heritage and Grizzly Bear Protection Act, H.R. 3894

I invite you to cosponsor H.R. 3894, the Tribal Heritage and Grizzly Bear Protection Act. Grizzly bears are considered sacred by many Tribes, but today only a small fraction of the historic
grizzly populations exist in the lower 48 states. While some populations are starting to increase, grizzly bears continue to be threatened by habitat loss, climate change, and trophy hunting.

Protect our nation’s salmon–Oppose H.R. 3144!

Please join me in opposing H.R. 3144, a bill that will mandate the use of an unlawful operation plan for a series of federal dams in the Pacific Northwest known as the Federal Columbia River Power System. The operation plan mandated by H.R. 3144 threatens
the existence of the Pacific Northwest’s iconic salmon runs, violates our nation’s bedrock environmental laws, jeopardizes thousands of jobs in the commercial and recreational fishing industry, overturns the judicial process, and harms tribal fishing interests
throughout the Pacific Northwest. For these reasons, I ask that you join me, the Governors of Washington and Oregon, and numerous conservation, tribal, and business groups in opposing H.R. 3144.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Support and Defend EPA’s “Once In, Always In” Policy

We are deeply concerned by the Administration’s recent decision to increase hazardous air pollution by rolling back the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) “once in, always in” policy. Ending this long running policy will reverse the progress demanded
by the Clean Air Act and will cause serious health consequences for the public. Please consider joining us in sending a strong message to the Administration in support of this important clean air policy.
