Sample letter to your representatives in Congress
As your constituent, I am requesting that you do not allow these anti-regulation bills to pass the Senate.
These bills trivialize the rule-making process by allowing non-experts in Congress (with industry influence) to value political expediency over a process that includes thorough analysis by experts and a comment period by citizens (as well as industry).
Please join in filibustering these bills, as they are likely to pass should they come to a vote.
These bills failed to pass the Senate
Because these bills failed to pass the Senate, there is no need to write to your representatives regarding this issue.
We are keeping this letter to add to your understanding, and because a future Congress is likely to attempt to introduce similar bills.
