From the Sierra Club:
Please ask the Governor to Veto HB2017!
Thank legislators who supported Clean Cars and Clean Air.
There is still one more vote to be counted relative to HB2017. That is the Governorâ€™s. While she has been extremely supportive of the Clean Car Rule and very engaged in the Western Climate Initiative, I think it is important to let her know that there are lots of people out there who support a veto of HB2017.
Please take the time in the next couple of days to send Governor Napolitano a quick note asking her to please veto HB2017 Now: greenhouse emissions; regulations; fuel economy. This bill sends the message that Arizona does not want to do its part to clean up the air or reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants. That is the wrong message to send.
If it becomes law, HB2017 will undercut â€œClean Carâ€ and clean air programs and significantly restrict Arizonaâ€™s ability to participate in regional efforts to limit greenhouse gas emissions as well as other pollutants.
You can contact the Governor at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to http://azgovernor.gov/contact.asp and type in your message. Call 602-542-4331 or outside the Phoenix area 1-800-253-0883. You can also contact the governor via mail at: The Honorable Janet Napolitano, Governor of Arizona, 1700 West Washington, 9th Floor, Phoenix, Arizona 85007 or by fax at 602-542-1381.
Also, please take the time to thank the following legislators, all of whom voted against HB2017 and all of whom recognize the importance of taking actions to improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. While the legislature is acting irresponsibly as a body, these individual legislators stood up and did the right thing. I have included their email addresses for your convenience. Please thank Representatives: Ableser email@example.com, Bradley firstname.lastname@example.org, Brown email@example.com, Cajero Bedford firstname.lastname@example.org, Chad Campbell email@example.com, Chabin firstname.lastname@example.org, Farley email@example.com, Gallardo firstname.lastname@example.org, Garcia email@example.com, Hershberger firstname.lastname@example.org, Lopes email@example.com, Lopez firstname.lastname@example.org, Lujan email@example.com, Miranda firstname.lastname@example.org, Pancrazi email@example.com, Prezelski firstname.lastname@example.org, Schapira email@example.com, Sinema firstname.lastname@example.org, Thrasher email@example.com, Tom firstname.lastname@example.org, Ulmer email@example.com, and Young-Wright firstname.lastname@example.org.
