Legislation Up-Date

The efforts of hobbyists all across the nation paid off with the recent defeat of the old car scrappage provision in the Energy Policy Act of 2002 (Section 822 of S.517).  Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell's (C-C) amendment to eliminate scrappage from the legislation was passed by unanimous vote.  There were thousand of e-mails, faxes, letters and phone calls and those hobbyist efforts were cited by Senator Campbell as a compelling force in helping defeat this legislation.  While we can be momentarily glad, we must be continuously vigilant.  These things only snozze!
