Subject: Congress About to Vote on Arctic Refuge!

Dear NRDC Member,

We have just learned that the House and Senate could vote by Friday on a final
budget resolution that would pave the way for opening the Arctic National
Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.

No matter how many times you've contacted your senators and representative on
this issue before, it is critical that you call them again right now.

Please call the Capitol Hill switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for the office
of your representative. The operator can give you his or her name if you don't
know it. You'll be forwarded to a staff member or an answering machine. Leave a
message urging your representative to:

"Vote against any budget resolution that includes reconciliation instructions
that could lead to Arctic Refuge oil drilling."

Then call your two senators and leave them the same message.

The wording of your message is important because the budget resolution may not
even mention the words "Arctic Refuge." It is more likely to
contain "reconciliation instructions" to the House Resources Committee and the
Senate Energy Committee requiring them to find budget savings of $1.4 billion
or more. The pro-drilling chairmen of these committees would then be free to
say they will generate new revenue by allowing drilling in the Arctic Refuge.

Remember: if your representative or senators vote for a budget resolution with
these reconciliation instructions, they are voting to drill the Arctic Refuge!

Your phone call will have the biggest impact, but if you are unable to call,
then please send electronic messages to your representative and senators by
going to
right now.

Please stand up for America's Arctic Refuge in its hour of greatest need!
