Sample email on legislative bills

Aloha legislators:

Our organization strongly urges you to vote down SB 2816, HB2501 and HB 1501.

Both SB 2816 and HB 1501 appear to be efforts by Governor David Ige and various special interests to ram thru TMT and criminalize peaceful first amendment protest on State lands.  Please protect the constitutional right of free speech and the right of citizens to protest.  Attempts to fast tract TMT in the past caused major problems for the state and a second attempt is likely to result in more of the same.  Allow existing legal due process procedures to stand.  No more special legislation for special interests. Vote down these bills.

We also urge you to vote down HB2501 which we view as a sneaky bill involving corporate theft of public streams.  Our organization has been growing kalo in Kurtistown for 36 years and we want to support small scale taro farmers and the people’s right to water (not A&B Big 5 corporate interests) on Maui.

Mahalo for your consideration.

Urge legislators to vote down SB 2816 & HB 2501

Aloha Kakou,

SB 2816 appears to be another effort by Governor Ige to ram thru TMT and criminalize peaceful first amendment protest on State lands.  Protect the constitutional right of protest. Vote this bill down. This bill is due to be voted on Tuesday, May 3rd at 10AM so action is needed NOW!   Please speak out and urge State legislators to vote against SB 2816 –Trespass on State lands bill.  Mahalo.  Legislators email addresses are below.  You can call toll free from the Big Island 974-4000 and ask for the legislative office you want. I would encourage those on Oahu to go to the Capitol Tuesday morning in protest of this bill and the Maui water bill HB 2501 which is the corporate theft of Maui streams.
