Melissa and I arrived safe and sound in DC this morning. I'm very much looking forward to heading to Capital Hill tomorrow morning with my colleagues from E2 (Environmental Entrepreneurs).
We are divided up into several groups. My group will include two other green entrepreneurs and a retired General. Our first day will include meetings with nine Senators (or their staff.) Our second day we'll be meeting with five House Members plus a couple folks from the Administration.
As I was spending the last couple of hours researching the different Senators and Representatives, I find it so amazing the wide variety of "opinions" on economic, environmental and energy issues. Even within parties!
Our goal is to educate on the importance of legislation designed to foster green economic growth, reduce emissions and make our transportation system as efficient and safe as possible. I look forward to the opportunity!
