Our calls to lawmakers are working! ETP’s bill has stalled, but could come again at any time. Let’s keep the pressure on.
There’s another reason to stop this bill. It’s impossible to say for sure, but I’ll bet anyone a dozen cage-free eggs that another oil pipeline through Iowa is under consideration. The mere threat of another round of condemnation for a new pipeline underscores why it’s so important to call, write or visit your state representative and senator again and immediately!
Remind them to vote “NO” on SF 2235 / HF 2394! If this legislation passes, crude oil pipelines will be classified as “critical infrastructure.” That could make it a whole lot easier for another pipeline to be sited through Iowa in the future.
Remember, the squeaky wheel . . . um . . . gets the oil.
