Greetings everyone,

Happy Winter! As we move closer to beginning a new year, it is time to start thinking about the upcoming session of the Arizona Legislature. Things will kick-off at the Capitol on January 13th with the Governor's State-of-the-State address. That evening, we will hold our first Citizen Lobby Workshop of the year in Phoenix (see details below).

Our weekly legislative updates will begin on January 10th and will include committee calendars and any bills that may be on the agendas for the following week, plus opportunities for action. Throughout the legislative session, we will send you weekly legislative updates/alerts with at least one action per alert. If you would rather not receive these updates, just go to manage email preferences where you can add or remove these updates and other Sierra Club emails. If you have difficulties with it, just send me an email and I will make sure you get removed.

On Tuesday, February 18, 2014, we will host Environmental Day at the Arizona Capitol. There are more details on that  below and we will send out additional information on it early next year. Please plan to attend!

Thank you for agreeing to be part of our lobbying/advocacy team by contacting your legislators and for speaking up for clean air, clean water, and this land we all love.

Warm regards,
Sandy Bahr
