Enviro-mich,

Thank you to all the folks in Michigan that have worked so hard on
protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.  Special thanks to UofM and
MSU students who were tireless organizers on this issue.  Michigan's
environmental, faith and labor community did an excellent job working
together on protecting the refuge.

We won by a vote of 54 with us and 46 against us to block the Murkowski
amendment to open the refuge to oil drilling.

Senators Levin and Stabenow deserve special thanks for staying strong on
protecting the refuge.

-Dan
