UPDATE: It was a good day! The EV/Hybrid tax bill passed with the amendment we wanted! The Sandbox bill was deferred. Yey!
We'll be here in the Capitol Rotunda until 3:PM - come by and visit. Angelle and Sophie are already at work leaving comment cards and making live comments on the three bills we are working in committee today - HB 1, HR 1033 and HR 564.
We are pushing for HB 1 and all related bills to include a focus on preservation and maintenance for all infrastructure dollars. We are Opposed to HR 564, a Sandbox bill. And we are possibly in Favor of HB 1033, a bill to tax EV and Hybrid owners. As written, we Oppose it, but with Amendment #3472 added, we will Support. The Amendment reduces the original tax to a reasonable and fair amount.

The US finally adopts a national recycling strategy
Justine Calma - Yesterday 5:25 PM
he Environmental Protection Agency announced a new national recycling strategy today, the agency’s first ever such commitment, according to the Washington Post.
It’s a roadmap for the US to achieve a goal of recycling at least half of its municipal waste by the end of the decade. That’s a steep rise considering the US’ recycling rate has actually declined since 2015, and was only at about 32 percent of all municipal waste in 2018 (the most recent year for which there’s EPA data).
The recycling plans the EPA announced today are just the first piece in “a series” of forthcoming documents the agency plans to release to work towards a “circular economy,” or an economy where resources are recovered and reused to make new products rather than allowed to wind up in landfills. It’s a sort of tacit acknowledgement that recycling alone doesn’t make a huge dent in the world’s trash problems. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/the-us-finally-adopts-a-national-recycling-strategy/ar-AAQK2Jd
