beatrice_otter: The Schuyler sisters from the musical Hamilton, pointing to the sky (Schuyler Sisters)

Today, an issue which I called my congresspeople about twice came to a vote, and the Senate voted the direction I lobbied!  The bill in question was about the Bureau of Land Management's waste methane rule.  Basically, when you drill an oil well, you usually get methane first.  Oil companies can capture most of this and sell it, but it's not as profitable as the rest of the stuff they get out of an oil well, so they'd rather just burn it, wasting taxable resources and polluting the atmosphere.  There BLM has a regulation that says they have to capture it.  The Republicans tried to overturn that, and failed!

I call my congresspeople pretty much every day.  I do this using the 5calls.org website, which makes this easy.  It gives you a list of issues, you pick one, it gives you some background on it and the phone numbers for who to call about it and a script for what to say when you do.  It's really easy.  And if you have social phobias, you can call after hours and leave a message.  It's effective political activism made simple!  I highly recommend it!
