In the name of John Muir- Speak Up!!

John Muir was a pretty remarkable guy to say the least. A naturalist, a conservationist, and most importantly, the founder of the Sierra Club! Now, tomorrow is John Muir's Birthday, and in celebration we are all headed out to the Regulatory Reform Hearing to let our voices be heard regarding environmental regulations. I'm sure he would be very proud of all of the hard work we are investing in our environment. Following the hearing, we will be hosting a birthday celebration in honor of Mr. Muir at the Busy Bee Cafe in downtown Raleigh, please join us!

Most importantly, this Thursday, April 21st, is the set date for the final Regulatory Reform Hearing in Raleigh from 1-3pm in the legislative auditorium. If you haven't yet heard of these hearings, their initial aim was to take a second look at regulations that may burden businesses. The reality is that this committee is attacking environmental regulations that protect our air and water regulations, and thereby, the health of the environment and ourselves! The last hearing, in Hendersonville, proved to be successful and over 130 people came out to serve as the voice of the environment. The Raleigh hearing is just as important, and we are looking for supporters to come and give public comments. For more information, or to sign up to speak, please email our volunteer coordinator at travis.hargett@sierraclub.org
