MEC breakfast kicks off new term at Capitol

There is a new landscape at the State Capitol. The November elections brought 40 new faces to Lansing, a shift in power in the State House, and new leadership in both the House and Senate. With these changes come exciting opportunities to pass laws that will promote energy efficiency and renewable energy, phase out toxic chemicals, restore our Great Lakes and protect Michigan’s environment. Like all great adventures, the best way to begin this legislative session is with a hearty breakfast. So we have invited all new and returning lawmakers, their staff, and key administration officials to join us for a legislative breakfast at the end of January. What: MEC Legislative Breakfast When: Wednesday, January 31, 2007, 8:30-10:00 a.m. Where: Mackinac Room, 5th Floor, House Office Building 124 North Capitol Avenue, Lansing MI At this breakfast, we will meet and greet new and returning legislators, share with them our priorities for the year and demonstrate to them the power of our community and that they must pay attention to environmental issues.
