Montana Environmental Information Center and Sierra Club invites you to join us and other environmental and conservation groups during the 2013 Montana Legislative Session to help us lobby during one of our Citizen Lobby Days. We will help guide you through the steps you need to effectively talk to your legislator about issues that matter to you. Please sign up for one or all of our citizen lobby days and let us help you protect the environment. Plan to attend one or all on Jan. 24, Feb. 13, Mar. 8 and Apr. 9.

We will meet in Bozeman about 7:45-8am to get to a lobbying training at 9:40am at  Disability Rights Montana, 1022 Chestnut Street, Helena, MT (Map).  We will be leaving Helena at 5pm.

    Montana Conservation Voters took the lead in running a training on how to lobby. Then MEIC, Northern Plains, MONT Pirg, SmartGrowth, and an Agriculture lobby got us up to speed on a number of bills, including repealing the oil and gas tax holiday (yes), SB 31 defining old hydro as a new renewable resource (no), revising zoning laws (no), HB 73 revising wolf hunting laws (no). Then off to the Capitol for lunch and lobbying. Join us for another exciting Lobby Day Feb. 13, near the time when a bill on Climate Change is going to be up.
