Global Warming legislation forum (note the change of location)

Our Governor plans to veto the global warming legislation, H.520, crafted by our legislature. So, we decided to hold a forum on this issue - after a bit of brief committee business.

We will hear from Senate Natural Resources Chairwoman Ginny Lyons of Williston, House Natural Resources Chairman Robert Dostis of Waterbury and other local legislative leaders are invited join the discussion - including those members of the Chittenden County delegation who opposed the legislation. Come with your questions (and of course keep it civil).

Join us to share your thoughts. Listen to the conclusions reached by our legislative representatives. Judge the facts against the Governor's spin.

Last month's meeting with T.J. Donovan was very interesting and had a great discussion of the issues he deals with. We hope to keep that momentum going.

Where: IBEW Union Hall, 3 Gregory Drive, South Burlington
When: 7pm, Monday, June 11th
Why: because it matters

What do you think of this bill? Is global warming a problem for today or something we can put off another year? Should Vermont Yankee pay the same tax rate as our other power companies (wind) or not? Submit a comment below...
