ACTION ALERT: Feinstein Declares War on Salmon and Fishing Jobs


Call Senator Dianne Feinstein today to stop her from dismantling the  
Endangered Species Act's (ESA) basic protections for California's  
endangered chinook (also known as king) salmon.

The Pacific Fisheries Management Council has just released numbers  
showing California's once abundant salmon runs came in at a new all  
time record low in 2009.

As a result, regulators closed all ocean fishing of chinook salmon in  
California and most of Oregon in 2008 and 2009 to save the salmon.

Senator Feinstein is proposing an amendment to a federal jobs  
stimulus bill that, in effect, would suspend rules that protect  
salmon from being killed by the giant diversion pumps in the San  
Francisco-San Joaquin Delta and would pump more water from the estuary.

Feinstein claims that this amendment will bring jobs to California.   
But, the closure of the western salmon fisheries has cost 23,000 jobs  
and $1.4 billion in the California economy.

Call Senator Feinstein and ask her to stop killing salmon and the  
$1.4 billion fishing economy. Ask her not to put an amendment in the  
jobs legislation that would increase pumping from the Delta!

Here are some key points to make:

Tell them your name and city in California
Ask her not to put an amendment in the jobs legislation that would  
increase pumping from the Delta. Tell them that suspending Endangered  
Species Act protections could be the end of the west coast salmon  
fishery, which supports thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in  
economic activity.


Call Senator Feinstein at (202) 224-3841 today!
