Say NO to Fish Roe-Save TN Taxpayers $16.9 million

Join the Tennessee Center for Policy Research in saying no to this boondoggle project in Speaker Kent Williams House District.

Link to TCPR Facebook Group

Governor Bredesen and House Speaker Kent Williams want to build a $16.9 MILLION fish hatchery in Williams' district with YOUR tax dollars. Call your legislators this week--while they are debating whether or not to spend your money on this wasteful project--and tell them to "SAY NO TO FISH ROE!"

Simply click the link below, type in your address and city, then contact your representative and senator to speak out against using your tax dollars on the fish hatchery boondoggle during these tough economic times!

Here's a sample letter you can use:

Dear Senator/Representative,

I am writing to strongly oppose the proposed fish hatchery in Governor Bredesen's 2010-2011 budget. At a time when people are losing their jobs and retirement, it's entirely inappropriate to spend nearly $17 million to hatch fish--something that happens quite well in the natural world without government intervention.

As a shepherd of Tennesseans' hard-earned tax dollars, please take a stand against this wasteful boondoggle. Thank you for your service to the people of Tennessee.

Sincerely,

Your Name
