The CAP ACT - What You Can Do Now

Now that the CAP Act has been introduced, the real work begins – getting the bill enacted.  NATOA members can help by contacting their Congressional Representatives and asking them to co-sponsor the CAP Act (HR 1746).  An easy way to do this is to meet with your Representatives and staffers at their local district offices during monthly constituent work weeks.  Constituent work weeks give your elected officials the opportunity to leave Washington and return home to discuss important issues with voters.  This is the perfect opportunity to discuss PEG operations in your community and why they should support the CAP Act.  The next constituent work weeks are scheduled for June 6-10 and June 27 – July 1. 

NATOA has prepared a Fact Sheet about the CAP Act, along with some Frequently Asked Questions that will help you during your meetings.  Also, if you want to know more about how you can successfully lobby your elected officials, CLICK HERE to view “How to Lobby Congress Without Leaving Home,” which offers tips on how to make your voice heard on issues of importance to your community, including the CAP Act.
