The Open Fuel Standard Act of 2011 Gains Two More Co-Sponsors!

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

The Open Fuel Standard Act has another Republican co-sponsor — Congressman Dennis Ross, a representative from Florida, and another Democrat — Congressman Bruce Braley, a representative from Iowa. That makes two Republicans and six Democrats who have co-sponsored the bill, plus the Republican who authored the bill, Congressman John Shimkus.

The bill was introduced into the House of Representatives earlier this month. It has 8 co-sponsors, and we need a minimum of 218 to get the bill passed. If you haven't yet urged your representative to co-sponsor the bill, please do so soon. Momentum is important.

Click here to find out how to contact your representative and what to say.

If you have already contacted your representative, help educate your friends and family about the bill, and urge them to contact their representatives too. It will help to subscribe to openfuelstandard.org so you can forward some of its emails. Or "like" our Facebook page and share those posts.

The more people our representatives hear from, the more likely they will be to turn their attention to this bill. Let's get it done.

How can we follow the progress of this bill -- the number of sponsers? Why do we have a year and a half to get the 218?

Track the Open Fuel Standard Bill

We have until the next election to make this bill into a law. That's about a year and a half away.
