FEDERAL ACTION ALERT – December 11, 2023

Produced by Democrats of the Red Rocks and Coconino County Democratic Party

A. Commend President Biden and Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland for the many
new federal government actions to support Native Americans as disclosed at the 2023
White House Tribal Nations Summit this week.
During the summit, President Biden
signed an executive order that makes it easier for tribal nations to access and invest
federal funding on their own terms. In addition, dozens of new actions were disclosed
that will affect Native Americans such as new land stewardship partnerships, cleanup of
historical sites and finalization of regulations for the return of human remains and
sacred items taken without consent and kept in museums and across federal agencies.
At the summit President Biden also expressed his strong support for the effort by the
Haudenosaunee Confederacy (a group of six Nations – Mohawks, Oneidas, Onondagas,
Cayugas, Senecas, and Tuscarora Nation) to compete under their own flag in the 2028
Olympics in lacrosse. The Haudenosaunee Confederacy invented the sport 2,000 years
ago! Thank President Biden and Secretary Haaland for their great efforts to support
Native Americans!!

B. Ask President Biden and EPA Administrator Regan to continue to act to do more to
curb climate pollution by enacting the strongest carbon standards and air quality
requirements for power plants! The EPA is taking additional steps by issuing a new rule
to reduce methane pollution. The new methane standard moves us closer to the
President’s goal to cut climate pollution by 50% by the end of the decade.
methane pollution from the oil and gas industry will improve public health, clean up our
environment, curb climate pollution and advance environmental justice. But we need to
do MORE. Ask President Biden and Administrator Regan to enact the strongest carbon
standards and air quality requirements as soon as possible to ensure that pollution
from these gas plants is reduced ASAP!
