[GreenYes] important recycling legislation .

In a message dated 10/4/2007 4:03:50 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time, robin@no.address writes:What is important is that there is the first REFORM legislation making it out of committee and actually having a chance at passage since 1985.   It's been a long, long time since major dailies like USA Today
and NYTimes (editorial below) were writing about the fact that forestry and extraction have billion dollar federal subsidy advantages over recycling.
Hi Robin and GRRN;
I agree with Robin that this bill is extremely important.
GRRN's mantra has been from the start in 1995: 
  • zero waste
  • jobs from discards
  • end welfare for wasting.
We  published a report about Federal subsidies at the turn of this century,
Who will take the lead and inform this list about where this bill is and what will happen next and when. 
How can we launch a national campaign  to see this through?
If it does not pass or move on this year, why not make it an election issue?
Robin , you the man!
end Welfare for wasters
