I received an e-mail late last night from the National Space Society, urging its members to call their House representatives and request support for the Senate's version of the NASA FY 2011 funding bill.
NSS Action Alert:
NASA Authorization Act
NSS has emphatically requested that the House of Representatives adopt the Senate version of the NASA Authorization Act of 2010. See below for the NSS statement.
The vote on this issue is now imminent!
Please call your Congressman today and let them know how you stand on this issue and what you would like them to do.
Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to your Representative. Or, use the following link to find their numbers directly:
Remember that telephone calls are usually taken by a staff member, not the member of Congress. Ask to speak with the aide who handles the issue about which you wish to comment. After identifying yourself, tell the aide you would like to leave a brief message, such as:
"Please tell Representative (Name) that I support adopting the Senate version of the NASA Authorization Act of 2010 and request that he/she do so as well."
Also state reasons for your support of the bill. You may email them a copy of the NSS Press Release. You may also request a written response to your telephone call.
