On behalf of the undersigned organizations and our millions of members and supporters, we urge you to oppose S. 951, the Regulatory Accountability Act of 2017 (RAA).

On behalf of the undersigned conservation and environmental organizations and our millions of members and supporters, we write to express our opposition to the confirmation of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch to a lifetime seat on the United States Supreme Court. Judge Gorsuch is an extreme and unacceptable choice for the Supreme Court, and we urge the Senate to reject his nomination.
