NCPIRG has a email campaign to ask Governor Easley to oppose HB1587. Public opposition is really mounting. Its time for our Governor to get involved. Lets ask him to stop HB1587. Here is some example language for your email from NCPIRG.
Dear Governor Easley,
North Carolinians need access to fast and reliable Internet service for communication and economic development.
Please oppose any legislation, including H1587, which will limit access to the Internet.
You can use the form on the NCPIRG website if you like. But I recommend a phone call or physical letter. Elected officials sometimes ignore mass emails. Its much harder to ignore a phone call. You can even call after hours and leave a message. They’ll still listen to it.
