Thank you for helping us protect North Carolina's environment!
I just received word that the North Carolina House
leadership has decided not to take action on SB 709 this week.
Some legislators have been threatening to push this dirty energy bill through, overturning Governor Bev Perdue's veto of a plan to put our coasts and water resources at risk by fast-tracking offshore drilling and natural gas fracking.
This is great news and a big victory for North Carolina
families, our environment, and our coastal tourism industry.
Thank you to the thousands of you who took action on this
issue last week by sending emails and calling your state representatives. Your
voice was heard and we can all celebrate our collective efforts to stand strong
for clean energy and common sense environmental standards.
While this issue is likely to come up again in the near
future, please accept my warm and enthusiastic thanks for helping win this
You are terrific!
Thank you for your activism and support,
