Tell your U.S. Representative to vote against H.R. 806 which weakens delays implementation of the updated ozone rules by eight years and tries to dismantle the Clean Air Act.
Last Day @NPT

The NPT PrepCom came to an end today. The outcome was not too bad (great compared to the 2004 PrepCom). Parties met at 10am today, and by 1pm the Chair decided they would never come to consensus on a draft recommendation to the Chair of the 2010 NPT Review Conference. The parties only adopted a procedural report before leaving.
Still, it was not a bad start. Not adopting a draft 2010 consensus document gives the United States more time to put Obama officials in place, like Susan Burk, Special Representative of the President for Nuclear Nonproliferation (with Ambassadorial rank). Susan Burk has yet to be sworn in, but has a great deal of experience and expertise to bring to the negotiating process. Check out her testimony for her confirmation hearing April 22.
