    Could you get this out to lists in your state and/or ask your U.S. Senators
    to co-sponsor -- this Bill will enhance the ability of states, counties and
    local government to participate during "significant" federal actions
    occuring in each of your areas. This Bill is a step forward in getting your
    message across through local government involvement during Environmental
    Impact Statements (EIS) in the intial phase - usually before or at the time
    of publishing in the Federal Register a Notice of Intent (NOI) by federal
    agencies and prior to the publishing of a Draft EIS.

    Click on Bill Summary and Status File below, then scroll down to co-sponsors
    and see if your Senators are on the list - if they are not on the list -
    write, call or email and request they co-sponsor. If they are on the list,
    write and thank them. Should they have reservations about co-sponsoring,
    please get a written response as to their concerns and contact me.

    NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act - '69 as amended) affects everyone
    in every state -- as your local elected officials and various offices become
    more familiar with how the process was intended to work, part of the top
    down strategies faced by all of us become more manageable at the local level
    by those most affected by rules or actions.

    Thank you.
