Title: [GreenYes] Re: 2 new messages in 2 topics - digest

Eliminating a raw material subsidy is better than a tax on the same
raw materials wasted.  The General Mining Act 1872 reform passed the
House by the way, last week.  But Sen Majority leader Reid is from
Nevada and there is a lot of speculation it will be watered down.

The PIRGs are strongly championing the reform measure.  ISRI is
debating it internally.  NRC is apparently silent on raw material
subsidies.  SWANA is oblivious.  Anyone at Greenyes have any
connections to bring folks together on this?  The opportunity to
reform only comes up every 135 years or so.  When recyclers are
silent, extraction companies will do the talking... Obama is now pro
mining...
