Support Biden’s Infrastructure Plan
DEADLINE: May 24 8:00am — This Monday
While you’re on the call with our Senators’ staffers, tell them: “The “moderate Republican” infrastructure plan is a joke – eliminate the filibuster and pass a real recovery act!”
Hello, I’m [NAME] from [CITY] and I’m calling to ask the Senator not to negotiate with the Republicans on their so-called infrastructure plan. Their plan is less than a quarter of the size of Joe Biden’s plan, which was already too small. The American people can’t afford to waste time negotiating with such a non-serious starting offer. Pass a real infrastructure plan with budget reconciliation or by eliminating the filibuster, and move quickly!
Vastly different climate approaches outlined by Biden and House GOP members.

Governor Inslee is signing SB 5126, Climate Commitment Act this afternoon — and we’re told he’s vetoing the Tribal provisions protecting sacred sites and cultural resources from projects funded by cap and trade revenue.
Please call Governor Inslee’s office at 360-902-4111 and tell him, do not veto the carefully negotiated provisions related to Tribal consultation and the protection of their sacred sites. For extra impact, write him a message here.
Next, please use this bill comment form for SB 5126 to tell all three of your Legislators that vetoing the Tribal consultation provisions in SB 5126 is a betrayal of Tribal engagement on the bill.
Thank you for taking action in solidarity with Tribes,
— David and the CAT rapid response team
