A new message from Elizabeth Conner and an additional Call Sheet.  From Elizabeth: “I am attaching to this notice a Call Sheet about Defending our National Marine Sanctuaries that I hope you will use to call from this week as the input deadline is August 15, 2017. Trump signed an Executive Order to review these Sanctuaries so that off-shore oil-drilling can proceed.  There are many calls to be made, however written comments also need to be submitted on this one. Before August 15, please comment at: https://www.regulations.gov/comment?D=NOAA-NOS-2017-0066-0001   More details and suggested scripts for written comments and calls are included in the attached call sheet.”   Here’s the National Marine Sanctuary call sheet.
