Subject: You did it again! The Arctic Refuge is safe for now.<br><br>
Date: March 19, 2003<br><br><br><br>
Dear MoveOn member,<br><br><br><br>
You've done it again. The Senate voted 52-48 today to protect the<br><br>
Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil drilling, by removing from<br><br>
the budget bill a provision that would have permitted drilling there.<br><br><br><br>
More than 2,000 MoveOn members helped make this possible by calling<br><br>
key Senators since yesterday. It may have made all the difference:<br><br>
two of the swing votes on whom we focused most attention, Senators<br><br>
Norm Coleman (R-MN) and Mark Pryor (D-AR), both voted to protect the<br><br>
Refuge. They made up the margin of victory today.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks and congratulations on the difference you're making. You're<br><br>
the reason why there's still hope.<br><br><br><br>
