The EPA intends to end the Clean Power Plan. First though, they will have to successfully repeal it, thereby deregulating power plants and slashing environmental protections. Post a comment protesting the EPA’s proposed repeal of the Clean Power Plan before January Jan 16 2018, at 11:59 PM ET . Link to comment form.
Sample Written Script (try to mix it up a little): I strongly oppose the revoking of the Clean Power Plan by the EPA. The Clean Power Plan, the centerpiece of recent climate change regulation, is intended to slash carbon emissions from power plants. It should not be repealed or replaced only strengthened. Climate change is not “fake news” it is the scientifically verified future of the planet. Ending the Clean Power Plan is a crime against that future. The role of the EPA is not to boost the economy of the fossil fuel industry; it is to protect the environment. Do your job.
ORGANIC FARMING – Write a comment!
Keep Organic Livestock and Poultry Organic – Deadline Jan. 17
The Trump administration has ruled that poultry and livestock deemed “USDA Organic” need not be treated any more humanely than the animals in conventional farming. The decision reverses years of policy at the Agriculture Department, which, through the “USDA Organic” label, dictates what may be sold as “organic” food in the United States. Voice your opposition by Wednesday, January 17! Here’s a sample comment. Try to mix it up a little.

Sample Written Script (try to mix it up a little): I oppose the rescinding of the USDA’s Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices rules that require more humane treatment of farm animals. Removing these protections is an attack on organic agriculture and a win for the destructive factory farm industry.

STOP “BACKDOOR” SEARCHES THROUGH YOUR COMPUTER – Make a call!
The Senate will most likely vote on Wednesday whether to re-authorize Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act, which permits the NSA’s to look through your emails, chat logs, and browsing history without paying attention to that pesky Fourth amendment that would otherwise have required a warrant. Protect your privacy. Protect your rights.
Minimum Script: I’m calling to ask that Senator [__] to oppose S. 139 with the FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act.
More script if you want it: Extending Section 702 without necessary reform will continue the invasion of our privacy and violation of our 4th Amendment rights.
