      Dear COIL Supporters,

      SUBJECT: Preview of February full page advertisements.

      Thank you for your previous interest in our gas tax initiative. Last
      years' advertisements were to determine what the issues were and what
      the level of interest was regarding a gas tax initiative. During the
      past year we learned a whole lot regarding the politics of taxes. And,
      as we all know, taxes are a very touchy issue with all Californians.

      California Oil Independence Initiative

      Stan Shore
