Economic Recovery Legislation; Energy Efficiency Amendment

Below are two sample texts you can use to write your senator about the Energy Efficiency Amendment that is part of President Obama's Economic Recovery Legislation.

Please take the time to find your senator and get the message out there. I know we are all busy and we may not think about stuff like this but it is vital that we participate in our government so it can be by and for the people, as designed.

Now I will step off my soap box. Move along.

Making homes and buildings energy efficient is the quickest and most cost-effective way to help people with their energy bills, reduce foreclosures and create great jobs in every community. I urge you to contact the Senate leadership in support of the Inslee amendment that increases the funding for energy efficiency in the Economic Recovery package. Thank you.


I am writing to encourage Senator X to contact the Senate leadership in support of the proposed Inslee amendment to the Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Act. As an (insert your energy affiliation), I believe it is critical that the energy efficiency funds in the Recovery Act be increased, not decreased, to meet the immediate needs of Oklahomans. Too many people can not afford their energy bills and are even losing their homes because of the recent rise in expenses. Making homes, businesses and government more energy efficient will help every community and will create at least 100,000 jobs in this state. I know Senator X will see the value of expanding the energy efficiency infrastructure in Oklahoma Thank you for reading this message.

This would also be a good project for students...
