A Message To Analog Meter Choice Advocates in Michigan

We only need a couple more votes to get HB 4220 out of the Energy Policy Committee, and on to the full House of Representatives.  We are so close to achieving this!

If you haven't already, please ask HB 4220 supportive representatives, not on the committee, for their help.

If your representative is not on the Energy Policy Committee but has told you they do support HB 4220, please call them today!

Please ask them to speak with one or more of their colleagues on the Energy Policy Committee who have not yet committed to a "YES" vote.  

Here's a suggestion of what you can say:

  • Hello Representative _______, my name is _______, and I am one of your constituents.
  • I need your help getting HB 4220, analog utility meter choice legislation, out of committee.
  • Please speak with one or more of your colleagues on the Energy Policy Committee who have not yet committed to a "YES" vote.
  • Please ask them to support HB 4220!  
  • Thank you!

  1. I have written several times for his to just tell me he isn't any part of this committee and pretty much is blowing this off. He said he voted for Consumers Energy to be able to regulate as they wish as he thought this was best for We had a conversation on that one and told him how wrong he was. So far he will do nothing and I have written others in our district in congress and they either do not respond or I get a form letter. So frustrating we vote for these people and they really are not for "We The People" at all!

    1. Sonja, have you called the Energy Policy Committee members yet? Committee members represent ALL Michigan citizens when on committee, so your calls to them count! Here's a link to the Energy Policy Committee members where you can click-through to get their contact info:

    2. No I have not done that, but I will. Thank you. I will be in touch.
