Default A new push in Congress

Greetings Steamboaters:

I received the following email this morning. Let's all take action on this one.

Date: Mon, 11 Feb 2008 19:23:35 -0500

The Delta Queen's fate could be decided during the week of February 25-29, when the Coast Guard reauthorization bill is scheduled for consideration by the full House of Representatives. Congressman Steve Chabot will introduce an amendment to the bill that, if allowed by the Rules Committee, will continue the Delta Queen's long-standing exemption from the 1966 Safety at Sea Act.

Even if you have done so already, please contact your Representative and urge him or her to vote for this bill. And ask everyone you know to do the same. You can either call or send emails or (better yet) faxes to Washington offices this week or to district offices next week, when members of Congress will be home for a Presidents' Day work period.


Best regards,

Vicki Webster
Save the Delta Queen Campaign

Thanks for all your help.
