TV ads urge Ross to support clean energy bill
LITTLE ROCK — Wildlife groups are sponsoring a television ad campaign this week urging 4th District Congressman Mike Ross to support the American Clean Energy and Security Act.
The ads are running in the Little Rock television market.
Ross is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which is considering the measure.
The campaign, backed by the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund and several other national and local wildlife groups, urges Ross to vote for the legislation the groups say is a strong clean energy bill that offers important environmental protections to reduce the effects of climate change on fish and wildlife habitats.
“Hunters and anglers want fast action to safeguard natural resources and reduce the effects of climate change in the places where they fish and hunt — places they want to protect for their children and grandchildren,” says Ellen McNulty of the Arkansas Wildlife Federation.
The group says hunting and fishing are economic engines in Arkansas that drive jobs and general hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.
