Great Job, Repower America Members! January 27, 2010 : 1:13 PM

Repower America members have sent more than 7,000 letters to the editor opposing Lisa Murkowski’s attempt to gut the Clean Air Act.

Here are some excerpts from publish letters:

Tim Peterson from Billings Montana writes in the Billings Gazette: “I want my senators, Max Baucus and John Tester, to know that I will be watching how they vote on Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s amendment attacking the Clean Air Act [...] A vote for this Dirty Air Act is a vote for backroom deals and polluters.”

Lonny Peet from Madison, Wisconsin writes in The Cap Times: “Instead of looking for ways to delay action, our senators should be working to pass clean energy and climate legislation that demonstrates true American leadership, creates jobs for our economy, makes our nation more secure and reduces pollution.”

Bob Paleck from Vernonia, Oregon writes in The Daily Astorian: “After attending U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden’s town hall meeting in Vernonia yesterday, I’m assured that he can be counted on to defeat this arrogant attempt to hamstring federal efforts to clean up the power industry.”
