E-M:/ Your Help Needed to Stop Bush's Rollback of Evironmental Protections!

Enviro-Mich message from "Lauren Pagel" <lpagel@mineralpolicy.org>

Comment now to stop Bush rollback of mining safeguards

Unless concerned citizens stop them, President Bush and Secretary of
Interior Gale Norton will revoke environmental mining safeguards and replace
them with weak, outdated rules.  The current mining rules govern the
activities of the mining industry on publicly owned lands managed by Bureau
of Land Management (BLM) and would better protect wildlife and rural
communities threatened by toxic pollution.  Bush/Norton want to rescind the
current mining safeguards, and replace them with old mining rules that left
a wake of environmental devastation and taxpayer-funded mine pollution
cleanups.  We need your comments to oppose the Bush/Norton mining rollback.

To comment, got to our website <http://www.stoptherollbacks.org>.

You will be able to send you comments directly from the site.  You will find
a sample letter you can customize or simply send as is.

Urgent Alert--Please take a minunte an send an email to Gale Norton and tell
her to Stop-The-Rollbacks of the new mining safeguards. Go to
