People like me who emailed a position and comments to the mining hearing last Wednesday are not going to be happy with being told their position and comments were not included in the Assembly's hearing report, according to this email received today from Assembly mining committee chair Mary Williams:

Hello James,Thank you for contacting my office and providing your thoughts on AB 1.I appreciate your desire to have your position on this bill added to the official committee report, however, this is not a request that is typically fulfilled by any Assembly committee. Standard procedure has always been to add registrations of persons physically present at the hearing to the official record only.Although your name and position was not added to the official record, we have retained a copy of it in the hearing files.Sincerely,Rep. Mary Williams
87th Assembly District
From: James RowenI am registering my testimony below in opposition to AB1 and SB1. Kindly acknowledge receipt, and thank you.
