Sample phone script: Hi, my name is ______.  I live in ______.  I am calling to ask you to oppose SF85, the bill to build a big natural gas plant in Becker, Minnesota.  I’m opposed to this bill because (pick from any of these options that speak to you – or give some of your own!):   It will lock our state into more fossil fuels.
