E-M:/ Stop the Riders! Send a Fax to Clinton



Hey all,
 
Please help out to stop the anti-environmental riders on the current Federal spending bills! They are trying to pass a suspension of the clean water act to allow mountain top removal mining to occur (they cut off the top 1500 feet of mountains to reach seams of coal as thin as a few feet thick - totally disgusting).

They are also trying to pass a rider that would allow mining companies to dump toxic waste on public lands.
 
Just go to this web site and click on the "take action" link, and you will be able to fax the president a message.

PS-pardon that this is not entirely MI specific, but it may have ramifications on MI water ways if it is learned that everytime a judge shuts a controversial project down, the industry can go to congress and they will exempt them from the law.
