Support in the U.S. Senate needed!

May 28, 2008

The Save the Delta Queen Campaign Team has pinpointed a potential ally in the Senate. There is a good chance that we can persuade Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania to introduce exemption legislation for the Delta Queen. It is crucial that he hears from as many people as possible — especially from people living in Pennsylvania.

Please, if you can, contact Senator Specter and ask him to do whatever he can to get an exemption (preferably a permanent one) for the Delta Queen through the Senate. And please ask everyone you know — especially anyone who lives in Pennsylvania — to do the same. Also ask them to ask more people to do the same. Here’s where you can reach Sen. Specter:
 
The Hon. Arlen Specter
711 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510
Phone: (202) 224-4254
Fax: (202) 228-1229
Email through his web site: http://specter.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Contact.ContactForm

Within the next two weeks we’re also going to deliver a set of petitions and resolutions to Sen. Specter’s office at Capitol Hill. This will consist of petitions, resolutions, and Steamboats.org petition messages that we’ve collected since our first delivery to them on April 18. Anyone who has petitions or resolutions, please let us know so we can give you details about whom to send them to and when.

The fight to save the Delta Queen has just begun!
