Conservation Alert: Please call President Clinton at 202-456-1111
or fax him at 202-456-2883 and tell him to end salvage logging in
the National Forests, and to end the moratorium on listing
endangered species. Urge him to insist that Congress repeal both of
these bad riders, and also to repeal the rider that removes EPA
oversight over wetlands permit decisions.
Please also call your Senators at 202-224-3121 and ask them to
support the Bradley/Boxer bill (S-1595) to repeal completely the
salvage logging rider. Please also continue to call your House
members as per the two previous alerts at 202-224-3121 to sign onto
the Morella letter urging an end to the moratorium on endangered
species listing; and also to support the Furse/Morella bill in the
House to repeal the salvage logging rider. See last week's alerts
for details. Many thanks for your help.
