This morning, Republicans in the U.S. Senate’s Environment and Public Works Committee suspended the rules in order to bypass a boycott by Democrats on the confirmation of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt. The full Senate is expected to vote next week on whether Pruitt will become the next EPA Administrator.
We need Senator Susan Collins to uphold Maine’s honored tradition of speaking up for the environment by opposing Pruitt. Sen. Collins recently expressed reservations about Pruitt’s nomination, saying she is concerned “about the number of times he has sued the very agency that he has now been tapped to lead.”
Please contact Sen. Collins, thank her for raising concerns, and urge her to vote against Scott Pruitt’s confirmation:
- DC office: (202) 224-2523
- Augusta: (207) 622-8414
- Bangor: (207) 945-0417
- Biddeford: (207) 283-1101
- Caribou: (207) 493-7873
- Lewiston: (207) 784-6969
- Portland: (207) 780-3575
Be patient: Many of Sen. Collins’ voice mailboxes are filling up quickly.
Be persistent: We’ve found that you might have to try a few times to get through.
Don’t give up hope: Together, our calls and actions are making a difference.
Thank you for taking action!
