PennEnvironment sponsors rally and lobby day June 7
There has been interest from a couple folks to go to PennEnvironment’s lobby day focused on Marcellus Shale legislation on June 7 in Harrisburg. We’d leave early morning (6am) and return by 7 or 8pm. There is at least one car going from Indiana, we could carpool, or caravan, or hop on a bus that’s going from Pittsburh if there is more interest.
It should be a great experience and great opportunity to speak directly to our lawmakers. Let me know ASAP if you’re interested in going.
