Monday evening at 5:30PM. I understand all the finest Slabbers will be in attendance. Come meet Nancy and the rest of the US House of Representative leadership. Editilla d’Aphasia and Mr CLS a special invite to you two guys. Rep. Melancon attended last year. Space is limited so arrive early 20 minutes or so early.
The best poll (IMHO) shows Obama winning in November. We made an impression last year – having the House on our side will prove invaluable for all us Slabbers. I got the email press release from AM but Anita Lee broke the story.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders are expected to attend a town hall meeting on insurance at 5:30 p.m. Monday in Bay St. Louis.
U.S. Rep. Gene Taylor, D-Bay St. Louis, will host this third annual meeting. Taylor is serving on a conference committee that is working on a bill to offer wind insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program.
A panel speaking at the meeting will include homeowners, a builder and others who will talk about insurance problems after Hurricane Katrina. Taylor’s office said he is continuing to document the need for a federal multiple-peril insurance policy.
The delegation also will include House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., and other members of Congress. Before the Town Hall Meeting at Our Lady of the Gulf on Beach Boulevard, the group will tour Louisiana and Mississippi to see how recovery is progressing.
