The Planet
Fighting Back With Radio

One way to combat state-level audit privilege bills is via the airwaves. Radio ads are not only effective but, if you choose your stations carefully, surprisingly inexpensive. Below is the script for a Sierra Club radio spot that was broadcast recently in the St. Louis area. The ad ran 10 times a day for an entire week at a total cost of $350 - half of which was paid for by the Club's coalition partner.

Radio Script, 30 Seconds

Representative Phil Smith has a bill in the Missouri General Assembly that would let polluters keep their violations secret and be immune from any penalties - even criminal penalties.

Favoring this bill were major chemical and industrial corporations.

If industries violate the law, citizens have a right to know and the company should be held accountable. What if persons were injured or their property damaged?

Call Representative Phil Smith at 754-4577 and ask him why he is doing this . . . that's 754-4577.

Paid for by the Sierra Club and the Missouri Coalition for the Environment.
