Two critically important DOI/BLM Appropriation hearings to be held the same day — from In Defense of Animals
This is a one-day Action Blitz. Comments are needed asap for TWO BLM Appropriations hearings.
We just learned of TWO critically important budget hearings before the House AND Senate Appropriations Subcommittees for the Department of Interior (DOI) budget, both scheduled for Tuesday, March 9. At these hearings, DOI Secretary Salazar (9:30 am) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Director Bob Abbey (2:00 pm) will testify on the proposed FY 2011 DOI/BLM budget, which includes funding for the fundamentally broken BLM wild horse and burro program. Director Abbey will testify specifically about BLM’s budget before the House Appropriations Subcommittee.
We need to make sure the Senators and Representatives at both of these crucial hearings on Tuesday hear loudly from Americans that this program needs systemic reform – that roundups must stop and no funding should be given for Secretary Salazar’s proposed “preserve.”
YOUR voice is desperately needed. Let’s do what we can to try to get Congress to address the horrible wild horse and burro program at these critically important hearings on Tuesday. TAKE ACTION NOW (by clicking here) and PLEASE ask your friends and family to take action.
