As you know, the Republican leadership of the House and Senate plan to add an amendment to a future appropriations bill, that would open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.

I am writing to urge you to vote against any appropriations bill that includes an amendment to oil drill in ANWR. I also ask that you lobby among moderate Republicans in Congress to join in this effort. It will be the only way to defeat this misuse of an appropriations bill.

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a God-given gift of pristine wilderness, first set aside by President Dwight Eisenhower more than 40 years ago, and we have a responsibility to preserve it. ANWR is home to more than 150 wildlife species, including caribou, polar bears, musk oxen, and millions of migratory birds.

The American people will not stand idly by and allow this wilderness area to be defiled.

Thank you for your consideration of this critically important matter. Please send a reply with your response of what you plan to do.

Very truly yours,

Add your name here.
