>Dear JTR Colleagues:
>
>I've been told that JTR folks have been interested in how to better
>communicate information to state policy-makers, including legislators,
>about current market development programs and the benefits of recycling
>(e.g. REI data).  Apparently, in the past, EPA issued a grant to the
>National Council of State Legislatures to try to help with this kind of
>education.
>
>You may be interested in the National Caucus of Environmental
>Legislators (NCEL).  Their website can be found at
>http://www.ncel.net/index.html.  I'm not familiar with the National
>Caucus of Environmental Legislators but my supervisor, Terry Grogan,
>found out about them on the NPR web site following an electronics story
>last week and thought you might be interested.
>
>Their website describes the Caucus as:  "NCEL was organized in 1996 for
>the purpose of providing environmentally progressive legislators with an
>opportunity to coordinate their activities with respect to national
>legislative organizations, and to share ideas both on affirmative and
>negative environmental issues.  Participation in NCEL is by invitation
>to elected Members of state legislatures, regardless of political
>affiliation, who have demonstrated an interest in and commitment to
>environmentally progressive legislation."

>Sincerely,
