Alaska Wilderness League endorses 72 Online rule

The Alaska Wilderness League endorsed the following statement in March 2006:

“We support the 72 Online rule to require generally that legislation and conference reports be posted on the Internet for 72 hours before floor consideration in Congress.”

Note: Endorsers of the 72 Online concept do not necessarily support or oppose any legislation, nor agree with the views of ReadtheBill.org or other endorsers on specific legislation or other matters.

What they say

“Legislation to drill the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge seems to pop up anywhere, anytime. The legislative process has become a sneak attack instead of a democratic debate. The 72 Online rule would give a fair chance to wilderness in Alaska and order in Congress.”

–Cindy Shogan, Executive Director, Alaska Wilderness League
