Don't Let Congress Sell Out Wolves -- Take Action

WolfThings are getting ugly in Congress this week as lawmakers try to arrive at a budget deal to keep the government from shutting down. Attached to this year's Interior spending bill are more than 100 policy riders, including 17 pushed by Republicans that would weaken or remove protections for endangered species. Among the most troubling: provisions that would end Endangered Species Act protection for wolves in Wyoming and the Great Lakes states. Another would incentivize a fracking boom by lifting a crude oil export ban that has been in place since the 1970s.

We need your help this week to stop these damaging "riders" from being included in a final, must-pass spending bill.

Please take two minutes to call your senators
today and urge them to push for a clean budget deal -- no backroom dealings.
