Target: Representative Scott Tipton
Action: Call Representative Tipton at (970) 241-2499 (Grand Junction Office) and tell him you’re disappointed with his committee vote in support of the “Strengthening the Economy with Critical Untapped Resources to Expand (SECURE) American Energy Act” and urge him to vote NO on the act when it reaches the House floor.
I am calling to express strong opposition to H.R. 4239, the “Strengthening the Economy with Critical Untapped Resources to Expand (SECURE) American Energy Act” This bill would transfer management authority for the permitting of federal oil and gas resources to states and encourage offshore oil drilling, while limiting commonplace safeguards.
The bill checks all the boxes on the oil and gas industry’s wish list, including giving more power to industry-friendly states, making permits unnecessary for certain federal lands projects, and prohibiting government regulation of fracking on public lands.
Future generations deserve the same chance to experience our public lands as those before them, enjoying fishing, hunting, hiking, camping and exploring these iconic places that belong to every American. For this to happen, we need you to vote against H.R. 4239.
