    Now is the time to keep the letters, emails and phone calls going letting them know about our side of the issue. Remember to keep it civil and respectful, goes a lot farther.

    For me, the bill has some valid and good points, however, once again, it is too broad of an attempt, covering areas that should not be included. I think the committee needs to fine tune the bill then vote on it.

    These are cosponsors of the bill that we need to let know they are NOT acting in the best interest of all Land users.

    I had opportunity to speak with Dale Kildee to express our desires today (he was in Flint this weekend). His focus was/is on Health Care Reform and need to more the issue forward. I questioned the rationale of the two independent issues being combined at great sacrifice. Dale and I have had many conversations over the years and he has always tried to shed a light into his reasoning. We have not always agreed, in fact we have disagreed on a variety of topics over the years.

    Our points, concerns were made for him to at least hear first hand without an aid or committee to interpret what he heard. He intends to follow-up with the congressmen from Utah and dig up a few more facts.

    Debbie was to be in Michigan as well this past weekend, but I was unable to catch up with her. Debbie's real problem lies in her inability to get her name on a single bill during her tenure, other than being a co-sponsor. Her chances of reelection are fading as fast as the leaves changing color.
