CALL TO ACTION ALERT!
National Heritage Area at Critical Stage & YOUR Letter of Support Is Needed Now!

Congressman Tom Reed's office alerted us that our legislation will take another important step forward when Congress reconvenes. 

Right now, Congressman Reed needs to carry your voice of support for this legislation to Washington and make this a reality.

Please take a moment from your busy day to send your Letter of Support!

We respect your time! Feel free to use this form letter or create your own to share your feelings about the area and why this designation is so important to you and your business.

FAX is the most direct and effective format.  
Fax: (202) 226-6599

Alternately, emails can be sent through the Congressman's staff: Alison.Hunt@mail.house.gov

We also ask that you forward a copy of your correspondence to FLTA at CindyK@FingerLakes.org 

Thank you for taking time from your busy day to support the Finger Lakes and this important legislation!
