CURB Update!!!

The hearing for the bottle bill was on March 7th and went fairly well. Thanks to all who came in support!!!! We had a lot of opponents, which we expected, who made a few valid arguments and a lot of false arguments.
Now that the hearing is over our work really begins. We must refute the false arguments and get HB 839 out of the Environmental Matters Committee. This involves contacting your legislators! Even if you have signed a form letter in support, it would prove very useful to write a personal email or make a phone call to your representatives. If you aren't sure how to find them, visit http://mdelect.net/electedofficials/ .
Especially key are the legislators on the Environmental Matters committee which are :
Appointed by House Speaker:
Maggie McIntosh (District 43), Chair (410) 841-3990, (301) 858-3990
James E. Malone, Jr. (District 12A), Vice-Chair (410) 841-3378, (301) 858-3378
