Family and friends are lining up to send letters and emails. We are planning a targeted September 14th blitz.
Congressional pressure takes the form of money. Follow the money and we should be able to hit the pressure points. I would be interested in knowing which congressional committee oversees the funding of USFS, the size of MTDC’s budget, and the role of NFPA in all of this. Who are the members of those committees and especially the Chairs? The congressional committees can stop a lot of action by killing an item in committee. Congress is setting its agenda for the coming year now. So it seems to me it’s important to know more about who actually makes those decisions–then go after them.
For those of you who have friends and family interested in joining this effort but who do not know how to reach their Congressional reps, this site is useful: Click here: Congress.Org — Write to Congress and State Legislators
There are many things I don’t know, so educate me folks. I’m jumping into this fray
