Anti-Nuke Alert: Fight For Nuclear's Place in the Energy Bill

I just got an important note from my colleague Lisa Shell on how everyone can express their support for the energy bill right now:

Anti-nuclear groups have organized a massive call-in to the U.S. Senate to oppose the nuclear provisions in the energy bill that is currently in joint-committee negotiations. Details about the anti-nuclear call-in are on the Nuclear Information and Resource Service website.

To make sure our PRO-nuclear voices are heard by our legistlators before they cast their votes, NA-YGN is conducting a pro-nuclear call-in effort scheduled for the entire day of Wednesday, July 27. The bill may be on its way to a floor vote by the end of the week.

The phone numbers to call are:

Capitol Switchboard: 202-224-3121
Toll-Free Numbers: 1-888-355-3588 or 1-877-762-8762

Keep your message clear and to the point! Staffers field hundreds of calls a day so don’t worry if you feel rushed.

The key objectives of the call in are to:
  • Express your support for the Energy Bill. Remind legislators that nuclear energy is safe, clean, reliable and cost-competitive. It must be part of our solution for a balanced and secure energy mix.
  • Get your friends, co-workers and colleagues involved and have them call their legislators too!
Be sure to spread the word!
Check back with NEI Nuclear Notes for updates.

UPDATE: Our friends at NA-YGN Midlands are answering the call as well.
