Omnibus Federal Lands Bill - AGAIN?

There has been talk again about the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill...

One blog reports....

Please, call your US Senators (and others) at least once a day for the next two weeks. Their phones, faxes and e-mail machines must not stop ringing. When you reach their office, ask to speak to the staffer handling the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill being finalized by Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).

Here’s what you can say:

  • You oppose the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill that will likely include the LWCF Trust Fund (S 3663):please vote against it.
  • You oppose the Corps and EPA Wetlands Land Grab (HR 5088 and S 787): please vote against it.
  • They must filibuster, place a hold on, or otherwise delay the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill for careful bipartisan consideration in the next session of Congress.
  • Respectfully tell them that you will look to see how they voted and if they haven’t already been retired, their vote on the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill will determine how you vote in the next election.

The Omnibus vote could come as early as this week or it may be delayed until next week or even later. Please forward this message to your entire e-mail list.

This one also boasts one of the more complete listings of legislators contact info!

For info on whether your legislator voted in favor of the 2009 Bill see this site! I think you will be surprised to see that while we can't agree on taxes or health care - grabbing land from the public seems to have bi-partisan support!
