A Sample Letter to Your Representative

Subject: Open Fuel Standard Act of 2011

I am writing to you today in support of H.R. 1687, the Open Fuel Standard Act of 2011, introduced by Congressman John Shimkus. Open Fuel Standards is one common-sense approach to energy independence – a critical national security issue.

As a member of ACT! for America, the nation’s largest and fastest-growing national security grassroots organization, I am but one of 160,000 members who believes that we must cut the cord that keeps us dependent on wealthy dictators and dangerous Islamist nations for our fuel. Further, we must stop funding terrorism every time we fill up our gas tanks.

At zero cost to the federal government, H.R. 1687 is an excellent solution to reducing our nation’s dependency on foreign oil. Passage of this proposal finally will allow us a choice of fuel each time we fill up our gas tanks. Our dependency on hostile foreign regimes for our gasoline will end.

Aside from the national security perspective is the economic one. These are difficult times. Back home in your district and across the nation, we are feeling the pinch of the rising cost of fuel, especially as we plan our summer vacations for the months ahead. It is critical that our elected officials focus on alternative energy sources and now. Open Fuel Standards as a solution is doable in the short term and inexpensive to put into practice. So what are we waiting for?

I urge you to support H.R. 1687 by signing onto the legislation as a co-sponsor.

I look forward to hearing from you about this important issue.

Thank you.
