A letter to Bottle Bill Supporters

Hello Bottle Bill Supporters!
Happy New Year!
We have been busy finalizing details, and meeting with legislators to ensure that the bottle bill is comprehensive and works well for everyone involved. The legislative session has begun and the bill will be introduced in a couple of short weeks. We will keep you updated with details. Also, if you visit the blog http://mdbottlebill.blogspot.com/, there is a schedule of important dates for the Maryland General Assembly.
There is also a link to an article in the Gazette about the bottle bill (http://gazette.net/stories/011907/businew190005_32023.shtml ). The article has a lot of opposition written into it, so we are calling on you for action! If you are interested in writing a letter to the editor in response to the article, that would be very helpful. Useful statistics can be found on www.bottlebill.org and we have included the instructions for writing a letter to the Gazette below. Also, feel free to respond to this email to ask for any further assistance that you may need.
Please email us to inform us if you are able to write a letter. It is very important that we keep Maryland citizens informed of the importance of this bill.
THANK YOU so much for your interest and involvement!
We will be in touch very soon ~
Sincerely,
C.U.R.B
(Citizens Using Resources Better)
