When the 1994 Congress cut funding for its research groups, the Environmental and Energy Study Conference didn't die, it reorganized as the for-profit Congressional Green Sheets. As a part of Congress, the conference had provided information about House and Senate actions on environmental issues. With the same staff and its new name, Green Sheets provides the same information - for $695 a year. The cornerstone of the operation is the Environment and Energy Weekly Bulletin, a 30-page weekly preview - still on green paper - of upcoming action in committees and on the House and Senate floors. The weekly specializes in detailed histories of bills affecting everything from fisheries to mining. Contact Congressional Green Sheets, 406 E Street, S.E., Washington, DC 20003 (202/546-2220).
