>From: Andy Wilson <andy.citizen@...>
>The House Energy and Commerce Committee began its deliberations this
>week on the Waxman-Markey discussion draft and it has already been
>an interesting few days. There is hope for our Texas members of the
>committee, especially the more progressive ones, and some hilarious
>statements from Texas's own Joe Barton.
>Join us for the first of our weekly calls for grassroots and
>grasstops to discuss what is going on in DC, what all of the local
>groups are doing to make this bill as good as possible, and how you
>can be a part of it.
>Call in # (218) 936 - 7979
>Code: 512 477 1155
>1. Overview and Q&A on Waxman-Markey-- what is it? Is it a good
>bill? How do we make it better?
>2. Timeline: What is going on in the next 6 weeks, and why does it
>matter? Which Congressmen are involved?
>3. Individual organziation plans for the committee process and beyond
>4, How you can be involved.
>This first call will be a little longer than the ones we will do
>later, as we all attempt to get on the same page. I hope this call
>will not take more than 30-40 minutes, and future ones can take 15-25.
>Please join us and please let your networks know about this call so
>we can get the majority of enviro activists at least represented if
>not there personally.
