Action Alert 



The House Resources Committee is planning to mark-up CARA next 
Nov. 10!  This is the moment we've been waiting for! Congratulations to

This is our chance to thank members of the Resources Committee who
CARA, reaffirm their support for the vote and ask for the support of
that are still uncommitted. Getting the bill out of committee with a
vote of support is our immediate goal.  When this happens there are
enough votes to pass it on the floor.

Most of the issues that have kept CARA bottled up have been resolved.
Chairman Don Young and Ranking Democrat George Miller are anxious to move
ahead.  We're at the critical juncture we've glimpsed for months on the
horizon. Now is the time to harness our collective energy and push CARA
the hump.

The wildlife title remains rather noncontroversial but it can not move
without the rest of the bill.  Unfortunately a handful of property rights
groups that primarily oppose additional Federal land acquisition as part
Title II have vowed to defeat CARA during mark-up.

Unless we express our support for CARA as loudly and passionately as
very activist groups, we may lose critical support.  Republican support
particularly will be essential to getting a successful vote out of
and then bring the bill to the floor.  

Our mission is clear, and time is short!

We need to convince all members of the Resources Committee to vote for

We've all worked hard to get this far . . . let's roll up ourselves and
sure CARA receives the support it deserves.

The most important thing you can do is call, fax or e-mail members of the
Resources Committee and urge them to vote for CARA!  Attached is the list
members. Send this message to colleagues, friends and family in other
and encourage them to do the same.

Additionally, the Resources Committee is accepting comments via email at:
CARA at mail_house.gov . Let's make sure they hear loud and clear of our
support for the bill especially Title III.

Here are 10 reasons to support CARA:

1) CARA is the most sweeping and significant piece of conservation
legislation in half a century.

2) By providing increased funding for wildlife programs, CARA will reduce
the need for costly and disruptive endangered species listings.  It will
help ensure that common species remain common.

3) The bipartisan bill before the committee is the result of extensive
negotiations between Republican and Democratic leaders.  It is sensible,
moderate, consensus legislation!

4) CARA has the support of a huge coalition of businesses, conservation
groups, sportsmen's organizations, and municipal leaders.  Forty-nine
governors have expressed their support for the basic concepts in the

5) CARA keeps decision-making at the local and state level, not in D.C.

6) Sportsmen will no longer be the only ones contributing financially to
wildlife conservation programs. 

7) CARA will provide much needed funding for greenbelts, playing fields,
trails, and neighborhood parks.  Outdoor recreation is essential for
families and boosts the quality of life for all Americans.

8) CARA will help protect and restore the nation's coastline.  It will
states and coastal communities mitigate the impacts of offshore oil and
other types of development.

9)  More than 125 members of the House and 21 members of the Senate are
cosponsoring CARA.  CARA's time has come!

10)   CARA provides a way to invest revenues from the depletion of the
nation's oil reserves into something of lasting value for all Americans.


Call, e-mail or fax as many members of the Resources Committee as
Tell them why you support CARA.  Pass this message on to as many people
you know.  If you have friends or family in states with Resource
members, please send them this message.

On the next page is the contact information you need.

generations will thank us for having worked so hard to pass this landmark
bill.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call Naomi or
Sara at IAFWA at 202-624-7890.
