Friends,

At 11AM students from The Leadership Campaign will begin our direct action in Representative Binienda’s office in the Statehouse, demanding the date that he will release our bill from the House Rules Committee so that it can receive a fair hearing.

Representative Binienda has previously been a strong supporter of our call to action of 100% Clean Electricity and bill. In the fall of 2009 Representative Binienda signed onto our letter to the Governor asking to swiftly introduce our bill.  However, he now has the sole formal authority to release our bill and yet it has been sitting in his committee for over 3 months.  He is blocking our bill, for no legitimate reason from, receiving a fair hearing.

So, today on the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day 30 students will be entering Representative Binienda’s office, escalating numbers throughout the day, and not leaving until we receive an answer as to the date that he will be releasing our bill from his committee.

Stay tuned here for live coverage of events.

Happy Earth Day,
Dominique McCadden
