ALERT: Press Briefing on Climate Amendment

June 17, 2005

Climate Change Proposal

National Commission on Energy Policy


Friday, June 17

3:30 p.m. in Dirksen 370



Please join us for a press briefing on the climate proposal by the National Commission on Energy Policy that has been put into legislative language and will be offered as an amendment to the Senate energy bill.  Reporters will have ample opportunity to ask questions, and text of the amendment will be distributed. 


Yes, 3:30 p.m. on Friday is truly late for many reporters -- especially those trying to think through a tough topic like climate.  We’re sorry about that.  However, please don’t ask for an early peek at the text.  The aim of this briefing is to provide an occasion for you to sit down and have a thoughtful conversation with experts on what is likely to be one of the bigger energy stories next week … not to win a race to be the first to break details on this proposed amendment.   


Hope you can make it.  Thanks.
