Many thanks for this heads-up, Eric. It would be useful if a few community
members could be there.
Hmmm, the Chair is from the 6th District of Virginia, round Shenandoah
Valley way. Never heard of him before now so don't even have a sense of his
politics. And a Quayle as Vice Chair...go figure.
Waters-CA, Sanchez-CA, Conyers-MI, Nadler-NY and Jackson Lee-TX are old line
Democrat liberals. Issa and Pence are the only Republicans that I recognize.
Issa is from Southern California and made lots of money in the new economy
so he might be more ofay with the topic than most. Pence comes across as a
sensible conservative, from someplace in the Midwest. Used to be way up in
the leadership too.
