Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

Yesterday we sent out an alert from our friends over at the Outer Banks Preservation Association (OBPA) regarding H.R. 819, Preserving Access to Cape Hatteras National Seashore Recreational Area Act on the House side. (See our alert here) Today we have another alert from OBPA with an urgent Call To Action regarding S. 486, Preserving Access to Cape Hatteras Beaches Act on the Senate side.

We've pasted OBPA's Action Alert below. Please take a minute to read the alert, take action and then pass it along to friends, family and riding buddies.

As always, call or email if you have any questions or comments.

CALL TO ACTION:

5/13/2013

Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee -
Markup Consideration Scheduled for
S. 486 Preserving Access to Cape Hatteras Beaches Act

URGENT TWO ACTIONS NEEDED
ASAP

TYesterday, I advised you of the hearing scheduled for Wednesday May 15 by the House Natural Resources Committee and ask you to contact the committee and committee members to support HR 819.

Today, we learned that the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee has scheduled a business meeting for Thursday, May 16 at which time S 486 will be considered for markup to the full Senate.

Just as I asked you yesterday to contact the Congressmen on the House committee, I ask today that you contact the Senate committee and its members to urge their support for S486 at that business meeting. 

Members of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee are listed at http://www.energy.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/members.

You can contact the Senators using one or more of the following methods:

Email:

  Some Senators have public email addresses but most require the use of contact forms managed through their web sites. A directory of Senator email addresses does not exist, but online contact forms can be accessed using the following links.

Web Links:

•  http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfmis a directory of all U.S. Senators with links provided for contact forms for each Senator.

  http://www.energy.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/contact-form is a contact form for the Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

Telephone:

  A phone call will be the fastest way to communicate your opinion to the Senators. You will find the phone numbers at the above websites, or you may dial the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 to ask for assistance.

Articles found on www.islandfreepress.org, www.obpa.org, www.ncbba.org, may help you formulate your thoughts before you communicate with the Senators. However, timing is critical since any communication must be received by the Senators prior to  the May 16 vote. We ask that you quickly take action.

Thank you.

John Couch
President, OBPA
