RALLY: Urge Schumer to Oppose Dirty Energy Bill

  • Manhattan Office of Senator Chuck Schumer 780 3rd Avenue (between E. 48th and 49th Streets) Manhattan, NY (map)

Join us in urging Senator Schumer to lead the opposition to the Trump-McConnell Dirty Energy Bill.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is attempting to rush this 891-page bill to a vote the week of July 10 without any public hearings, bypassing all committees, and flouting normal procedures.

The Trump-McConnell Dirty Energy Bill would be a disaster:

· Promote more fracking and speed the approval of natural gas exports
· Give FERC even more authority to rubber-stamp fracking pipelines, expediting the build-out of more fossil fuel infrastructure
· Authorize millions of dollars for research into extraction of new sources of dirty fossil fuels from the ocean floor
· The “Renewables” section doesn’t even mention solar and wind power

On July 11, we’ll be delivering to Schumer a letter signed by hundreds of organizations and a petition signed by thousands of constituents calling on him to lead the charge in opposing this dangerous legislation.
