Help us send a message to Governor Corbett to stop using state lands as a cash cow to fill his budget deficit! Contact your State Representatives TODAY and ask them to co-sponsor Rep. Vitali's House Bill 1500! 

This bill would restore the original intent of the oil and gas lease fund and direct monies generated from existing gas leases on Commonwealth land back into conservation projects that are intended to help maintain and improve our public lands in the face of increasing threats from natural gas development. Governor Corbett has been diverting this money away from conservation projects and into the general fund, and that practice must end!

Please urge your State Representative to co-sponsor HB 1500 and stand with Rep. Vitali in support of conservation and the responsible use of oil and gas lease funds.

Please Co-Sponsor HB 1500 Today

Dear [Decision Maker],

Please become a co-sponsor of Representative Vitali's HB 1500 TODAY!

We need your support to restrict the use of the Oil and Gas Lease Fund to its original purposes of conservation, recreation, and dams and flood control projects. Currently, these funds are being diverted from their intended purpose to fill in holes in the general fund, which defeats the purpose of the creation of this fund in the first place.

I urge you to become a co-sponsor of HB 1500 right now, and take a stand for conservation and responsible use of funds!
