What you can do about the mining bill - BEFORE 9 PM!!

This may be a little distracted.  I am following the mining hearing in Madison on Wiseye, and at the same time trying to keep a little bit of an eye on the Bengazi testimony, and write this at the same time.

The mining hearing is quite a drama.   You really should watch if you're not there.  This is one of the better reality shows I've seen, and carries a lot of real tension. It's a case study in how to railroad a hearing. Let's just say it's pretty clear that the chairs have their favorites in the crowd, and that the clock seems to be more than a little capricious. 

Anyway -- what can you do?

If you are not in Madison testifying today at the hearing, you can email your comments on the bill to the chairs of the committee:  Representative Mary Williams at and Senator Tom Tiffany at .  Please make sure you ask that your comments be made part of the testimony on the bill.  You must do this by 9 PM today to have it included!
