Deadline Extended! Sign ons now due Monday, October 21, 5pm Eastern.
Despite the government shut down, the Coalition and our members are still advocating for the Great Lakes with the administration and congress. The fiscal year 2015 budget plan, as submitted by the White House will go to congress around February. Therefore, now is the time for our Coalition and organizational supporters to reach out to the Obama Administration and make the case for continued, strong Great Lakes restoration funding.
To that end, please consider having your organization sign on to this letter, which urges the Administration to fund the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative at $300 million, and to continue funding the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (which provides low interest loans to update aging wastewater infrastructure). If you are interested in signing on, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, title, and organization by close of business, Monday, October 21st.
