URGE MI SENATORS LEVIN & STABENOW TO FILIBUSTER THE ENERGY BILL BEFORE THE 
VOTE ON WEDNESDAY!

Dear Friends in Michigan,

The "Nuclear Power Relapse" energy bill could become law unless there is a 
Democractic filibuster in the U.S. Senate. The nuclear power subsidies, 
kept secret until the last second before the votes, are in the form of a 
"production tax credit," taking $7.5 billion out of the pockets of U.S. 
taxpayers and sticking it in the pocket of the already heavily-subsidized, 
wealthy nuclear power industry. Altogether, the taxpayer subsidies to the 
oil, gas, nuclear, coal, and electricity utilities could amount to over 
$115 billion, money that would have to be taken from the Medicaire and 
Social Security trust funds. The House-Senate conference committee will 
vote Mon. Nov. 17th; the House floor vote is Tues., Nov. 18th; and the 
Senate floor vote will be Wed., Nov. 19th. Calls to Sens. Levin & Stabenow 
before the vote Wednesday urging they filibuster the energy bill are 
critical! Together, we can stop the Nuclear Power Relapse! See their phone 
numbers below.

Michigan's U.S. Senators Carl Levin (a leader of the Democratic Party in 
the Senate) and Debbie Stabenow (with a reputation for courageous
environmental leadership, as with her vote in July 2002 against the 
dangerously flawed Yucca Mountain, Nevada nuclear waste dump plan pushed by
the nuclear power industry) are key to a Democratic filibuster against "the 
Energy Bill from hell". Continued calls/faxes from MI constituents
to both Senator Levin and Stabenow could make all the difference on 
stopping this terrible energy bill and the "Nuclear Power Relapse" it
contains!

Call us for the latest updates.
