Petition Congress to Act Now On Energy

Posted: Aug 19, 2008 9:43 AM
The Minnesota Majority is circulating a petition urging your U.S. Representative and Senators to enact the American Energy Act (H.R. 6566) to "bring relief to American families and improve our energy and economic security."

I urge you to check out their site and sign. It's because of the pressure that Americans from around the country have been putting on Speaker Pelosi and her office that she is at least now considering a vote on increased energy production here in the U.S..

We must reduce our dependence on foreign oil and replace it with increased domestic production. It's smart national security policy and smart economic policy, reducing the costs of goods and services while creating jobs in the process. The American Energy Act offers the American people the ideal solution: increased domestic production, increased investment in renewable energies and technologies, and greater conservation. The problem is Speaker Pelosi won't allow it to come to a vote.

Minnesota's five Democrat Representatives voted with Speaker Pelosi to skip-town rather than take a vote on the American Energy Act.

Let's keep the pressure on Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats who are following her lock step.
