Sen. Stevens is trying to sneak a provision into the defense spending bill that would open the pristine Arctic Refuge for oil drilling. Sen. Stabenow has fought against drilling in the past, can you call her and ask her to go the extra mile this time?

<http://political.moveon.org/call?tg=FSMI_2&cp_id=176&id=6568-61997-wuM2wrXcz26TurVVIZnYuA&t=1>I Called Congress

Dear MoveOn member,

We are down to the wire on drilling in the Arctic. After Congress stripped controversial drilling provisions from the budget, pro-drilling advocate Sen. Stevens just couldn't accept defeat. Now, he is trying to sneak drilling into a defense bill. A vote could come in the next 48 hours.

Sen. Stevens is even holding Hurricane Katrina relief hostage to get his way. Stevens was quoted as saying, "The levees will be paid for when we drill in ANWR."1

It's going to be a really close vote and Sen. Stabenow could be critical to stopping drilling provisions in the defense bill. Sen. Stabenow has fought against drilling in the past, can you call her and ask her to go all the way this time?

Then, please help us keep track by reporting your call here:


Even top military leaders are angered by this move. A group of top generals, including former Marine Gen. Anthony Zinni, sent a letter to Sen. Frist criticizing these backdoor tactics.2

Drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge would ruin millions of acres of pristine land and threaten polar bears and other treasured wildlife. It won't solve our energy crisis, or save us money at the pump, but it will line the pockets of big oil companies that are already recording record-high profits.

This is a dirty, last-ditch effort by some Republicans to sneak Arctic drilling through Congress. Republicans are willing to hold funding for our troops hostage so that they can line the pockets of their big oil cronies.

The next 24 hours will be decisive­can you make a quick call now?

Senator Debbie Stabenow
Phone: 202-224-4822

Thanks for all you do,
