Protect Obama’s Legacy and the Environment: Tell Congress to Vote NO on CRAs. The Congressional Review Act (CRA) allows Congress to undo any regulation the executive branch issues. Congressional Republicans are using it to undermine Obama’s legacy and roll back environmental protections. But the CRA is time limited: Congress can only review regulations finalized in the last few months. So if we stop Congressional Republicans here, they don’t get a second bite at the apple.
- Ask your Senator to oppose S.J. Res 11, which would reverse a law that required oil and gas companies to repair or replace equipment that leaks methane into the atmosphere. The Senate may vote on S.J. Res 11 Tuesday or Wednesday. Call Cornyn and Cruz TODAY!
- Ask your Representative to oppose H.J. Res 69, which would undo a law that banned non-subsistence hunting, including aerial hunting of wolves, in the National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska. The House Rules Committee will be voting on this resolution Tuesday morning, and it could reach the House floor for a full vote soon after. Call your Representative TODAY!

Texas teachers – contact Senator Craig Estes about SB 13. This bill will prevent educators and other public employees from using payroll deduction for voluntary association dues. However, doesn’t include police or firefighters. Looks like our legislators don’t want educators to be members of professional organizations. Curious – what are they afraid of? That we might have a voice in Austin? Texas teachers are not allowed to be in a “union”. Organizations are often our only source for information about state legislation. And they provide workshops-online training – additional insurance – grants, and much more. (from FB post)
