As I post this, it’s 10:42 Pacific Time (3/14/2013). In just a few hours, the Senate will likely vote on an amendment that would strip funding for steelhead and salmon restoration projects all over the west — including projects on California’s Sacramento, Klamath, Trinity, Smith, Eel, Ventura Rivers (and many more).
That’s why we’re asking you to contact Senator Diane Feinstein right now. Tell her to vote “NO” on the McCain amendment to the Continuing Resolution (the CR will fund the government through Sept. 30).
- Urge Senator Feinstein to vote against the McCain amendment, which will slash $65 million in badly needed funding for salmon and steelhead restoration
- Tell her restoration efforts not only benefit fish, but also lead to the creation of commercial/sport fishery jobs — jobs we need badly in these tough economic times
