>Support the American Heritage Rivers Initiative!!!
>In the last two weeks, the activity around the AHRI has stepped up
>tremendously.  Here are events of note:
>1)  CEQ extended the public comment period on the AHRI Federal 
>notice for the next 60 days.  There is still time to send in your 
>2)  The wise use/property rights/anti-environmental lobby is making 
>the AHRI
>its new poster child.  Congress and CEQ are being flooded with 
>faxes, calls, and E-mails opposing the initiative, spreading false 
>and calling for termination of the program.  This tide of opposition 
>has to
>be countered.
>3)  Last week, Rep. Helen Chenoweth (R-ID) introduced H.R. 1842.  This 
>would force the termination of further development and implementation 
>of the
>AHRI.  The rivers community must oppose this bill.
>4)  Rep. Don Young (R-AK) has called a full House Resources Committee
>oversight hearing on the AHRI for Thursday, June 26, at 10:00 a.m. in 
>Longworth.  At this time, it appears that only Administration 
>witnesses will
>be called.
>For the AHRI to be successful, it is imperative that you let your 
>Congressional Representative and your Senators know that you support 
>AHRI, that it will help to revitalize your hometown river and your
>community, and that you applaud this initiative for its focus on
>community-based conservation solutions that promote both river and 
>health.  Here is what the rivers community mus
>t do:
>1)  Encourage each member of your organization to IMMEDIATELY call 
>local Representative and both Senators to voice support for the AHRI.  
>urge Congress to STRONGLY OPPOSE H.R. 1842, introduced June 10 by
>Congressman Helen Chenoweth of Idaho (she prefers to be called
>"Congressman").  Contact the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 to 
>members of Congress.  REMEMBER:  this initiat
>ive needs as many calls, faxes, E-mails, and letters of support as can 
>2)  Encourage every member of your organization to IMMEDIATELY contact 
>and voice support for the AHRI, as well as provide comments on the 
>Register notice.  Also, send copies of all comments made on the 
>to Congress.  Here is the CEQ contact information:
