A Message from the Ad Hoc Committee for Smart Meter Legislation
THIS FALL A NEW SMART METER BILL
WILL BE INTRODUCED TO PROTECT THE
RIGHT OF CHOICE FOR ALL UTILITY CUSTOMERS!
We need to make an all out effort NOW to
reach all members of the House Energy Committee!
It is a new day now for smart meter legislation. We have more support for such a law now than we ever had before. To win this fight, it is critical that we persuade as many of the House Energy Committee members as possible. If enough are convinced of the necessity of such a law, a hearing will be scheduled on the law that has been drafted by some representatives who are on our side! After such a hearing will come a vote of the Committee to report the proposed law out to the full House with a recommendation that it be passed there or not. Later, of course, we will have to introduce a companion bill on the Senate side and follow that bill through a hearing and, hopefully, a favorable report out of the bill to the full Senate.
We desperately need volunteers! We need people who care enough about this issue to spend a day going into one or more of the districts of the 25 reps who are on that Energy Committee. You will find above a map of the lower peninsula of this state with all the district locations marked. Most of these districts are within a few hours driving distance. Find a friend to go with you and make a day of it!
We have three different flyers linked here:
Each of these flyers has a reverse side that is different according to what districts you plan to work. Contact Dave Lonier (248) 373-9111, or Dave Sheldon (248) 604-7545 and we will send you a flyer customized to your district(s).
If you would like to do this as part of an organized group emaill Linda Kurtz at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once in district, the task will be to find a highly trafficked location, which could be a supermarket, library or post office, and hand out flyers. Those who receive the flyer will be asked to phone their state House representative and tell him or her that they don’t want a smart meter on their home AND ask that rep to back a new smart meter bill soon to be introduced.
PLEASE CONTACT DAVID LONIER (248) 373-9111. Let him know which district you will be working and he will coordinate to avoid duplicated efforts.
