Your help and support are needed for clean air and clean energy! The following are good bills that we generally support, all of which are scheduled for the House Environmental Regulation Committee Meeting on Tuesday, April 3rd in room E2.028 at the State Capitol.
This Committee hearing begins at 8 AM and goes until the full House session begins at 10 AM. Then it will resume
upon adjournment, in the same room.
We invite you to join us, and to submit a card in favor of the bills, or to testify. We'll have stickers people can wear. Please send a related fax online at www.StoptheCoalPlant.org (later today), and pass this message along to your lists. Thanks!
There are good bills in the Senate too - and we'll try to keep you posted. If you can't come to Austin this time, rest assured that we'll need you on Senate bills coming up later!
