In recent years it's become increasingly common for certain Republicans to attempt to pass controversial, anti-environment provisions by attaching them to must-pass bills that fund our government. These attempts are sneaky and undemocratic. Policies that would never pass on their own as bills, and which have no basis in science and couldn't hold water in court, are becoming laws -- with devastating consequences.
Attached to this yearís Interior spending bill are more than 100 policy riders: 17 would weaken or remove protections for endangered species, including gray wolves, and another would incentivize a fracking boom by lifting a crude oil export ban.
Please call your senators today and urge them to push for a clean budget, no backroom dealings. You can leave your message with the receptionist or at the office's voicemail.
