Environment Campaign update .....
Arising out of our 2016 Annual meeting, we formed a group to work on the environmental legislative issue now known as Cap and Invest.
If you wish to be a part of this OUUVfJ group, please send your name and email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and indicate your Congregation.
CAP and INVEST legislation is being developed through the Joint Committee On Carbon Reduction. One informational meeting has already been held and you can go to the OLIS web site and browse to pull up information. A video and sound recording will be posted there shortly. It is a 2 and ½ hour session. Joint Committee on Carbon Reduction members is there as well.
There will be 6 more session for the public on this issue. It is a good time to let YOUR legislators know of your interest in this Legislation.
