And all people, everywhere and every day, need it

Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect man.
We are concerned over how the increase in power rates will affect wildlife. We are at this point, solely dependent upon how much water the farmers are using. It remains to be seen how this will play out, but we think less water will be coming through the
