Proud to Praise ‘Em!
AN HISTORICAL DOCUMENT: Originally published in the winter 1997 issue of REP’s The Green Elephant newsletter
If your GOP representative’s name is on the following list…
Please thank him or her personally for voting against Congressman Elton Gallegly’s anti-environmental “takings” bill.
Please praise him or her in a letter to the editor of your local newspaper for supporting the conservative concept of local control over local issues.
CA Bilbray, Horn
CT Shays, Johnson
IL Porter, Fawell, Ewing
MD Gilchrest, Morella
NJ Saxton, Smith, Roukema, Frelinghuysen
NY Forbes, Lazio, Kelly, Gilman, Boehlert, Walsh
If your GOP representative’s name is NOT here, you might want to write a letter to the editor of your local paper asking why.
Here’s REP’s suggestion for what to say: Congressman X or Congresswoman Y believes federal judges should have more say over local land-use issues than locally- elected officials and zoning boards.
PLEASE NOTE: A version of this bill will likely be fast-tracked in the Senate this year. Please ask both of your US Senators to vote NO to any “takings” bill!
