Join Bipartisan Effort to Keep Postal Facilities Open!

In 2012, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) began closing or consolidating mail processing plants across the country. Mail processing plants are the central sorting hubs, and their elimination can mean that mail has to travel further before delivery. Facility
closures have been associated with delays in mail delivery, missed overnight mail deadlines, and reduced frequency of deliveries. These closures are particularly taxing on seniors, veterans, and rural communities who depend on timely deliveries for prescriptions
and other services. While USPS temporarily halted these closures, they could begin again at any time.

Support the Huffman-Buck-Norman Amendment #19

We ask you to support our amendment to strike an unnecessary and wasteful provision in the Defense Appropriations Act. Section 8127 of the bill effectively requires the U.S. to ship energy (mainly coal) to a specific medical facility in Germany. Our amendment
would strike specific language within this section in order to help ensure that the Pentagon has the flexibility it needs to source its energy in the most cost-effective manner. This amendment does not change any other policies that would protect national
security by discouraging the use of Russian energy sources.

Join The Congressional Freethought Caucus

Join The Congressional Freethought Caucus

In writing our Constitution, our Founders prohibited governmental “establishment of religion,” protected the individual’s “free exercise” of religion, banned religious tests for public office, and protected the freedoms of speech, press, conscience and assembly.
By separating church and state in this way, our Founders not only protected pluralistic democracy and human rights but advanced science and technology and created a free market in religion which has helped guard the rights of individual conscience and worship.

Say NO to Trump Administration’s Rush to Drill in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

Last month, the Department of the Interior announced that it will begin the process to hold its first lease sale in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge by initiating scoping for an Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed lease sale and opening the
public comment period for a 60 day period. The Administration will not hold any public comment meetings outside of Alaska. As you will recall, this comes just months after oil industry allies in Congress slipped authorization for Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
drilling into the GOP tax scam.
