February 26th is the day!

Feb 24, 2008

The Delta Queen’s fate is in the hands of 13 people.
We must reach them by Tuesday, February 26th. Please help!

+++ Update: the Rules Comittee now meets on April 22; please take action before that! +++

For the first time in this Campaign, legislation to save the Delta Queen could go before the full House of Representatives next week — but only if the House Rules Committee approves an amendment to the Coast Guard Reauthorization Bill that would continue the boat’s exemption from the 1966 Safety at Sea Law. The Committee will meet the afternoon of Tuesday, February 26.

If you have not done so already, please contact the members of the Rules Committee (see the list below) and urge them to approve Congressman Steve Chabot’s amendment to the Coast Guard Reauthorization Bill, H.R. 2830.

And even if you have done so, please contact your own Representative and ask him or her to vote in favor of the amendment when and if it reaches the House Floor on Wednesday, February 27. And ask everyone you know to do the same.

    SAVE the DQ.
    This seems to be another political manuliptation by some one ( an elected rep.)to serve his own political/personal ambitions/benefit. Many in this country are fed up with this type political malfeasance and use by politions of their positions for their own benefit and that of their “friends” who support them politically by contributions to their re-election or personal benefit. Senator Stevens of Alaska and out standing example.This type of unethical position taking has got to stop! Voters need to make their feelings known. Why is Dug Moe not staying out of this unethical confrontation by not supporting the DQ’s exemption. As a endorser of historical preservation and a member of Moe’s organization- THE TRUST- I resent his position but suspect he rationalizes it because he wants support for the TRUST’S efforts elsewhere- both unethical and immoral.
