Make 6 contacts to legislators a day!

LaMalfa

Oppose H.J.Res.69 which allows mother wolves,coyotes, bears, and their young to be killed in their dens in wildlife refuges. It also allows trapping bears using body gripping snares and traps, baiting and hunting bears from airplanes. Baiting and killing mothers and young in their dens is not humane and violates any ethics for sport hunting. Terrorizing animals from planes and running them to exhaustion is neither humane or sporting. Studies do not show that the slaughter of predators will lead to an increase in populations of ungulates, the supposed reason for these changes.

Support “We the People Amendment”: Co-sponsor H.J.R. 48  Don’t let corporate rule destroy Democracy
Support ACA, Medicare, and Medicaid: Don’t take away health care from millions. Americans need access to quality, affordable health care.
Support transparency in government: Co-sponsor a bill which nullifies presidential gag rules. Information from public agencies that is not related to national security should be available to the public free of obstacles which impede the Freedom of Information Act. American tax payers are supporting these agencies, we demand access to the information they gather.
Oppose HR 621 which allows the federal government to sell certain federal lands identified as suitable for disposal. Once these land are sold, the public will no longer have access to them.  Don’t let corporate greed destroy these lands for personal financial gain at the expense of the public.
Oppose HR 622 which eliminates law enforcement functions of forest service and BLM replacing them with block grants to states. Without specificity for conducting law enforcement, states may choose not to use funds for law enforcement. These areas could be pilfered and destroyed. Ensure ongoing protection.
Oppose HR 861 which terminates the EPA. Our environment must be protected for ourselves and future generations. We must have clean air, clean water, and healthy environments.
Support H.R. 699 which would require a congressional declaration of war before the President could launch a first- strike nuclear attack.  President Trump has not shown the knowledge, experience, objectivity, or judgment to have control of our nuclear arsenal. We need congress to help represent the needs of  American citizens.
Oppose H.J. Res. 54. This resolution would let corporations avoid paying a part of the taxes they owe. It would undo a rule that was passed to prevent big corporations from reaping millions of dollars in tax breaks by suddenly claiming it was a foreign corporation when it was still headquartered in the U.S. All corporations must pay their fair share of taxes.
Support HR 816, the Federal Accountability in Chemical Testing Act, which would require federal agencies to provide detailed accounting on the animals they are using and the advances they have made in developing, validating, accepting and utilizing alternative test methods to replace animal use. It is time to end the use of animals in research. We must develop and use alternative testing methods which do not require the use of live animals.

Oppose any legislation which would allow oil and gas drilling in in our national parks. Americans do not want their national parks defaced or their access to park lands limited by the activities of fossil fuel industries which seek private profit.

 

Senators  Harris and Feinstein

Oppose S.J. Res. 18 which would take way protections for wildlife in national wildlife refuges. It would allow killing black bears and wolves at den sites, baiting brown bears, and killing body gripping traps and snares to kill black and brown bears. None of these methods of hunting are humane and decisions to implement the law are based on unproven efforts to increase ungulate populations.

Senator Harris co-sponsor S. 274  which was introduced by Sen. Feinstein. It nullifies the effect of the executive order banning refugees and people from 7 Muslim majority countries. Trump’s order is based on fear mongering, bigotry, and xenophobia which is counter to mainstream American values.
Oppose H.J. Res 44 which was passed by the house and seeks to overturn Planning 2.0, a rule which provides new opportunities for public input on how public lands are used. Planning 2.0 includes steps needed to ensure that important fish and wildlife habitats are intact ecosystems and has established procedures for preparing, revising, or amending land use plans.
Support S. 200 which would require a congressional declaration of war before the President  could launch a first- strike nuclear attack.  President Trump has not shown the knowledge, experience, objectivity, or judgment to have control of our nuclear arsenal. We need congress to help represent the needs of  American citizens.
Oppose H.J. Res. 54 which would let corporations avoid paying a part of the taxes they owe. It would undo a rule that was passed to prevent big corporations from reaping millions of dollars in tax breaks by suddenly claiming it was a foreign corporation when it was still headquartered in the U.S. All corporations must pay their fair share of taxes.
Support HR 816, the Federal Accountability in Chemical Testing Act, which would require federal agencies to provide detailed accounting on the animals they are using and the advances they have made in developing, validating, accepting and utilizing alternative test methods to replace animal use. It is time to end the use of animals in research. We must develop and use alternative testing methods which do not require the use of live animals .
Oppose the Congressional Review Act  which would gut a number of public safeguards now and in the future. This could stop vital protections to health and safety including the BLM’s work to cut methane emissions and hold fossil fuel companies accountable for their emissions. It could also cut EPA’s protections for vulnerable communities living near high-risk chemical facilities.
Demand that the Oversight Committee investigate Trump’s conflict of interests between his personal business and protecting the interests of the American people. American citizens should not be short changed if Trump seeks to advance his personal empire by creating a “bad deal” for Americans. The presidency has never been sanctioned as a tool for personal gain.
Demand that the Oversight Committee investigate Flynn’s involvement in Russian interference of the election and whether there are other campaign officials involved.  The interference of Russia in American elections can not be undervalued. The American people must know the extent to which American campaign officials are involved. We need to know if   Trump had any knowledge of Flynn’s actions, and if he condoned them.
Support transparency in government and Co-sponsor a bill which nullifies presidential gag rules. Information from public agencies that is not related to national security should be available to the public free of obstacles which impede the Freedom of Information Act.  American tax payers are supporting these agencies, we demand access to the information they gather.
Oppose any legislation to allow the mentally ill to purchase guns. Mentally ill individuals should be entrusted with the responsibility to use guns responsibly.
Support Title X Family Planning Funding which provides funding for family planning and health care services. These services are important to all Americans who want to have access to  family planning options!
