On ANWR: Five Questions

By May 25, 2006General

As the debate over ANWR continues today, someone sent us this: 5 questions you should pose to your member of Congress:

1.) Will you support environmentally responsible legislation backed by a majority of local Alaskans that allows them to use their own land to create jobs and provide funding for water and sewer systems, health care and schools?

2.) Will you support legislation that will safeguard America’s economy by producing 1.5 million barrels of oil per day, roughly equivalent to what we import from Saudi Arabia daily?

3.) Will you support a $728 billion investment in America’s economy that will help lower prices at the pump and strengthen America’s energy security?

4.) Will you support legislation that will lower energy costs for consumers while providing greater revenues to the federal government?

5.) Will you support legislation backed by major labor organizations, such as the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, to increase domestic energy supplies and create jobs for their workers?

Please take the time to drop your representative a note and urge them to vote to tap our own resources.
