E-M:/ Turn up the heat on Sen. Levin!

Enviro-Mich message from "Liz Godfrey" <lizgodfrey@prodigy.net>


Yesterday I sent an update concerning the Interior Appropriations battle and
the anti-environmental riders still attached to the bill.  I mentioned a
letter that is circulating among Senate Democrats asking President Clinton
to veto any legislation that contains anti-environmental riders.  The letter
will be closing TODAY and Senator Levin is NOT among the signers.  Let's
turn up the heat on Senator Levin and get him to ask Clinton  for the veto.
We need Senator Levin's help in safeguarding our nation's key environmental
laws!  Some of these riders are eerily familiar- Timber Salvage comes back
as "Forest Health".  (Attached is a list of titles the environmental
community has given the riders on the Senate version.)

Thanks for all your help!
