Re:                   Support the DISCLOSE Act

RE:     Climate and Energy Policy

It is time for the United States Senate to act against climate change and to put in place an effective energy policy for our nation.  These twin issues have been left to fester for far too long, endangering our health and environment, our national security and world leadership, and our jobs and the economy.
