Today’s Action comes from the League of Conservation Voters.
We need your help to stand up against the lifetime appointment of anti-environment extremist William Myers to be a senior federal judge. As expected, yesterday a committee voted along party lines to pass his nomination on to the full Senate for a final showdown vote.� The vote is scheduled to tak place just after Easter, so we don’t have much time to act!
The only way to stop this former mining lobbyist from undermining environmental laws for decades is to flood the Senate with phone calls.� Call (202) 224-3121 and tell them directly.
Myers is being nominated to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which has jurisdiction over some of the nation’s most pristine wilderness areas, including California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Montana, Idaho, Nevada, Alaska, and Hawaii. We cannot take the risk of having a friend of the mining industry in this post. He’s a danger to the Clean Water Act, our wilderness areas, and the Endangered Species Act.
Together we can send a message to George Bush that we don’t want anti-environment extremists sitting in judgment of the laws that protect our air, land, water, and wildlife.
Thank you for taking today’s action.
