Help Henry Waxman take down Dingell the Dinosaur!
Tomorrow, Democrats in Congress will make decisions on committee leadership. No committee is more important for potential action on energy and climate than the House Energy and Commerce Committee. For years, the committee has been controlled by 82 year old Rep. John Dingell, of Michigan, the biggest Democratic friend of the oil, auto and coal industries.
Rep. Henry Waxman (CA) has announced his intention to challenge Dingell for the Chairmanship of this committee. Waxman, who is one of the most progressive members of Congress, would indeed represent real change. For more info on why Waxman is a better bet than Dingell, go here.
