URGENT - PLEASE CALL YOUR SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVE TODAY!

Yesterday, the Senate Budget Committee passed a budget resolution that
included revenues from Arctic Refuge leasing. The day before, the House
Budget Committee passed a resolution that does not specifically include
Refuge revenues but leaves the door open for the Resources Committee to
include Arctic drilling during the budget reconciliation - the next stage of
the process.

These attempts to sneak Arctic Refuge drilling into the budget process are a
backdoor maneuver that has nothing to do with the federal budget, and
everything to do with the influence of the oil lobby in Washington, DC.
THIS MANEUVER MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO SUCCEED!

It is now more important than ever to remind our Congressional friends to
stand up and make sure that an issue as important as this isn't buried in
the budget process.

To save America's last great wilderness, it's crucial that every single
person voice their opposition to drilling in the Arctic Refuge loud and
clear. Call your Senators. Ask your friends and relatives to call as well.
SPEAK OUT NOW!

WHAT YOU CAN DO

FLOOR VOTES ON THE BUDGET RESOLUTION ARE EXPECTED IN BOTH THE HOUSE AND
SENATE NEXT WEEK! Please call or fax your Senators and Representatives
TODAY and urge them to oppose any Arctic Refuge drilling revenues in the
Senate budget resolution.

To contact your Senators and Representatives, you can use the toll-free
Capitol Switchboard line at 1-800-839-5276. You can also find a complete
list of Senators' phone and fax numbers on our website. Go to
http://www.northern.org/artman/publish/acurrent.shtml and click on "HERE" in
the sentence "If you prefer to call or fax, please click HERE for a complete
list of the U.S. Senators' phone and fax numbers." For a list of
Representatives, go to http://www.house.gov/house/MemberWWW.html.

*** ALASKANS!***

Your voices are needed as well!

Please contact Senators Olympia Snowe (ME),
John McCain (AZ), Lincoln Chafee (RI), Susan Collins (ME), Mike DeWine (OH),
Gordon Smith (OR) and Peter Fitzgerald (IL) and urge them to continue to

Representatives listed below who opposed the inclusion of Arctic Refuge
drilling in the energy bill.

are a

backdoor maneuver that has nothing to do with the federal budget,
