    Power Industries Organize

    I'm so proud...
    "Trade Groups in Lock Step Behind Bush Energy Policy"
    Washington Post (05/30/01) P. A2; Grunwald, Michael
    In a recent memo spelling out the terms of joining a recently formed
    corporate coalition of national energy industries, Wayne Valis, a long-time
    Republican loyalist and current chairman of the Trade Association Liaison
    Council, told prospective members that they would have to completely support
    the energy bill put forth by the Bush administration. The coalition, which
    was formed with the leadership of the American Petroleum Institute, the
    American Gas Association, the Edison Electric Institute, the National Mining
    Association, and the Nuclear Energy Institute, will raise money to lobby for
    an energy bill that increases fuel supplies, eases strict environmental
    regulations, and improves the nation's energy infrastructure. Despite the
    Valis memo, the coalition's spokesman said they would be open to proposals
    from either side of the aisle that put their priorities first. As for the
    Bush administration, it denies that it attempts to force corporations to
    march in lockstep behind its proposals. (www.washingtonpost.com)

    • "As for the Bush administration, it denies that it attempts to force corporations to
      march in lockstep behind its proposals."

      This is typical irresponsible Washington Post blather.

      This denial could only be in response to someone who flunked ninth grade Civics. And that pretty much describes the staff of the Washington Post.
