Dear MaSTer (That’s you!)
Find your Senator then call the Senate switchboard a
ME – Sen. Olympia Snowe
I’m writing with a quick, urgent request. One of your senators sits on a committee that will likely vote on a new multi-billion dollar transportation policy TOMORROW.
That means your call right now could play a critical role in the fate of our country’s transportation system.
Will we continue funding a 1950s vision for transportation or will we finally put ourselves on the path toward smarter, safer and cleaner solutions to our outdated and inefficient system?
Right now you have a chance to help decide – and all you have to do is place a simple phone call.
It couldn’t be easier – making your call will take less than 5 minutes!
Call the Senate switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask to be connected to Senator Snowe’s office.
When a staffer at your senator’s office answers leave the following message:
Hi, my name is ____ and I live in ____. I’m calling to ask the Senator to support two amendments to the transportation bill being taken up Wednesday by the Commerce Committee:
• Senator Begich’s amendment to ensure that federally funded projects are designed for the safety of all users of the transportation network, and
• Senator Lautenberg’s amendment setting national transportation goals and objectives for the transportation bill as well as updating our federal multimodal freight transportation policy
This is our chance to create a clear national transportation policy – one that prioritizes innovative, cost-effective and safer solutions to our transportation challenges.
If you care about pedestrian and bike safety, cleaner air, or making sure transportation decisions are accountable and transparent, be sure to make your call today.
And please forward this email to everyone you know that feels the same.
