People vs. Fossil Fuels have provided us with this additional informtion:
The House is poised to vote as early as TOMORROW morning, Eastern Time, on a rule that would attach the Dirty Deal to the NDAA, Congress’s annual Defense bill. The Dirty Deal guts key environmental laws and will fast-track the Mountain Valley Pipeline and other fossil fuel projects. This may be our only chance to stop the dirty deal from passing. We’ve killed this zombie bill before, and we can do it again! But, we need all hands on deck before tomorrow morning Eastern! Here’s what you can do: 1. Call key House targets and ask them to VOTE NO on any rule that advances the dirty deal. Tier 1 target phone numbers are here. You can use this script: “Hi, my name is ____, & I’m calling on behalf of ____. We urge your boss to vote NO on any rule that would advance Senator Manchin’s dirty permitting deal. This legislation is an unacceptable fossil fuel giveaway that makes a mockery of our climate and environmental justice goals.” 2. Send an email to House democrats asking them to VOTE NO on any rule that advances the dirty deal. You can use this contact list and this template. If you can only hit a few offices, focus on the tier 1 targets in the first tab. 3. Urge your network to take action against the dirty deal using this action pack.
