Action Alert:  MONDAY Bill to Gut Colorado Governor's Energy Office in Committee!

Hello clean energy colleagues,

I'm sorry to impose on your schedules on such short notice, but our good friend Reprentative Max Tyler (30% RES champion) is mobilizing testimony against a bill that just dropped Friday.  HB 1312 eviscerates the Governor's Energy Office as we know it.  Sadly (per Max), Governor Hickenlooper and Rep Becker have worked together to craft this bill.  The bill is essentially a referendum on the New Energy Economy, and assures favorable treatment ahead for coal, oil, natural gas, and nukes.  It must die.  
If you're able, please come to the hearing for to the Legislative Services Building Annex just south of the Capitol building tomorrow / Monday May 2  at 1:30 pm  and testify about why reorganization of the Governor's Energy Office as this bill mandates   is boatload of bad ideas.  Environment Colorado's Pam Kiely is drafting talking points that I'll distribute as soon as I have them.
If you cannot attend, please email your comments to:
Speaker of the House Frank McNulty    and
Chair, Agriculture Committee Jerry Sonnenberg           
Thanks very much for your active participation!   I've copied the bill summary below my signature, emphasis mine. 
Kind regards,
