Letter to Senator Specter on S. 786

I appeal to you to please not vote for Senator Santorum’s S. 786 – National Weather Services Duties Act of 2005. As written, it could privitize the excellent online services already provided by National Weather Service. It sounds like an act written only to protect the business of AccuWeather in State College – it again puts the interest of a private business (and contributor to Senator Santorum’s re-election campaign) above the interests of the taxpayer.

Where will this kind of behavior end? Can we rely on at least one of our senators in Pennsylvania to care at all about its citizens?

Sincerely,

Laurie D. T. Mann
