ACTION. Urge your Congressman to co-sponsor the “Udall-Eisenhower Artic Wilderness Act”.
In January 2007 then House member Ed Markey (D-MA) introduced a bill to permanently protect the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. In honor of President Eisenhower and Senator Morris Udall, who promoted the protection of the pristine area, the bill was titled the “Udall-Eisenhower Arctic Wilderness Act”. On January 9 of this year Congressmen Jared Huffman (D-CA) and Mike Fitzpatrick (R-PA) reopened the call for protection of a 1.56 million acre portion of the coastal plain with H.R. 239.
