Don't let Navigator control what Governor Pritzker thinks
Did you know that Navigator has a website that includes a form that allows industry and other supporters to tell Governor Pritzker and your State and U.S. Senators and Representatives that carbon capture and CO2 pipelines are good for Illinois? Well they are, and those comments also are appearing on the ICC's public comment page for Navigator's docket 22-0497.
But, we plan to change that! With your help, we can send several messages a day to the Governor and decision-makers. These letters and posts will highlight the hazards of CO2 pipelines, and tie our messaging to PHMSA's rule-making process. Here's what we are asking of you:
- Use the form to the right to compose a letter or modify the standard one we've created (NOTE it is always better to write your own, or at least alter the standard letter).
- Be sure to copy it before you click send. Temporarily save it in a Word or text file, so you have it readily accessible to paste on the ICC's public comments page for Navigator's project.
- Then, head over to the public comments page on the ICC site and paste your letter on that page. Instructions for how to do that can be found here.
Your comment won't appear on the ICC webpage unless you physically place it there. But it WILL be sent to all other recipients.
Don't know what to say?
If you are affected by either Navigator's or ADM/Wolf Carbon Solutions CO2 Pipeline, we know you will have a lot to say. Please opt for composing more frequent messages than sending one that is long and comprehensive. It is better to send shorter messages to your elected officials than one that includes all you r concerns. Make writing and sending a comment a weekly ritual, joining others who are doing the same.
If you are new to this campaign, and aren't quite sure what to say, sign up for our weekly prompts! We will send you just one email per week with suggestions for content, including references. For more ideas, take a look at:
How to use this advocacy form
It's easy! Your elected official will want your contact information, which is why this information comes first. Some require your phone number, but you can wait for the prompt if you don't want to add it now.
When you click next, you will be taken to the editable letter. While you can submit it as written, please know your concerns and position will be taken more seriously if you write your own, or modify what we have prepared as a base.
And that's all there is to it! Don't forget to place a copy on the ICC's webpage created to host comments on Navigator's project. Here is a quick tutorial that explains how to post your comment.
