A few days ago I wrote a letter to senators boxer and feinstein. Here is boxer's response.
Dear Mr. (The Six):
Thank you for contacting my office to express your views on H.R.2454, the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009, which was passed by the House on June 26, 2009. This comprehensive legislation aims to limit greenhouse gas emissions, improve energy efficiency, and promote alternative energies. Please know that I value your concerns and will keep them in mind as the Senate begins its consideration of this bill.
I believe that all citizens should become involved in the legislative process by letting their voices be heard, and I appreciate the time and effort that you took to share your thoughts with me. One of the most important aspects of my job is keeping informed about the views of my constituents, and I welcome your comments so that I may continue to represent California to the best of my ability. Should I have the opportunity to consider legislation on this or similar issues, I will keep your views in mind.
For additional information about my activities in the U.S. Senate, please visit my website, http://boxer.senate.gov. From this site, you can access statements and press releases that I have issued about current events and pending legislation, request copies of legislation and government reports, and receive detailed information about the many services that I am privileged to provide for my constituents. You may also wish to visit http://thomas.loc.gov to track current and past legislation.
Again, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me. I appreciate hearing from you.
United States Senator
A whole lotta nothing. Was it a waste of time and electrons? Probably but at least she's aware that there's one more out there who is paying attention and ready to hold her feet to the fire.
