Exciting news: The climate and clean energy legislation unveiled in the Senate today puts a strong emphasis on planning for and investing in clean transportation options. We applaud the authors of The American Power Act, John Kerry and Joe Lieberman, for advancing this critical piece of legislation that invests in our transportation infrastructure while delivering a win both for energy independence and climate protection.
Now the special interests that oppose clean transportation are going to pull out all the stops.
Please pick up the phone right now and make sure your senators know that you support the climate legislation because it invests in clean transportation options and will reduce emissions from the transportation sector. It will only take a few minutes, but your call could make a huge difference.
Here's all you have to do:
Interest groups that have been fighting against clean transportation are going to be mad - they'll fight this legislation every step of the way. We have to speak up loud and fast to counter their influence.
Please, call your senators today and let them know that you support this climate change bill because it invests in clean transportation and reduces emissions while beginning the critical task of rebuilding and modernizing our transportation network!
Thank you for all your help.
