9. WORTHY WEB SITE(S): State/Provincial Legislative Web Sites

Legislative sessions for the five Northwestern states begin this month (January), and each state now has a useful Web site to provide you with up-to-date information about legislation. The province of British Columbia also has a site providing information about the Legislative Assembly. The information on each site varies slightly from geography to geography, but most offer online access to bills (and bill revisions), lists of committees, email/web contact information for all legislative members, and a lot of other useful information. Reviewing these sites during the session is a great way to stay informed about pending legislation that can impact the regional environment. The Web site addresses for each geography is listed below:
* Alaska: http://www.state.ak.us/local/akpages/LEGISLATURE/home.htm
* Idaho: http://www.state.id.us/legislat/legislat.html
* Montana: http://www.mt.gov/leg/branch/branch.htm


The following note points to two very interesting and important discussion lists. The list described is MIDEASTENVIRO. However, indirectly mentioned is another list which could be also very important, MEH2O-L@VM.TAU.AC.IL From the name, the focus of that list is Middle East water issues -- which are some of the most important issues that could lead in the future to war or peace for the region (not just between Israel and it's neighbors, but between many other countries including Turkey and it's neighbors).
To subscribe to MEH2O-L, send email to listserv@VM.TAU.AC.IL Leave the subject line blank. As the body of your message, put: subscribe meh2o-l Firstname Lastname
(Replace Firstname and Lastname with your first and last names).

Sustainable Business Network Established on the World Wide Web

For Immediate Release

PITTSBURGH, January 30 -/E-Wire/--The EnviroLink Network announces the launch of its newest project, the Sustainable Business Network on the World Wide Web (http://www.envirolink.org/sbn) and on America Online(keyword: envirolink).
The Sustainabl Business Network provides an accessible focal point for the world-wide sustainable business community through information and connection. "Sustainable" is a concept that is becoming widely accepted not only in the environmental community, but also in the realm of business and industry. It means doing business and using resources in ways that produce a cleaner, more wholesome world. It means taking care of business while leaving plenty for future generations.
The Sustainable Business Network (SBN) offers a friendly, informative way to keep up-to-date on the exciting, though sometimes mystifying, changes coming to the business methods of the future.
"Acronyms like ISO 14000, IDEA21, GEMI, Smart Wood, ECO-OK need to roll off our collective tongues as do breakthrough companies and technologies like The Natural Step and Natural Cotton Colours", explains Rona Fried, Ph.D., the SBN Journal's Executive Editor. "The SBN will foster cross-pollination between people in Environmental Building Products and Natural Food, for example, as well as between people in small and large businesses."
The SBN Website has a variety of complimentary components:
SBN Journal This free, on-line, monthly magazine succinctly highlights current thinking and activity in the sustainable business community. The majority of the Journal consists of a selection of articles taken from leading trade publications who work with SBN Journal as Content Partners.
SBN Connections A freely approachable database of socially and environmentally responsible businesses and products throughout the world that makes it easy to locate eco-friendly solutions to a multitude of situations.
SBN Library Resources on sustainable business practices, including organizations, government agencies and publications, mailing lists are offered here.
SBN Forum Through bulletin boards and chats, people will learn about new developments, network, discuss issues, and have the opportunity to talk with respected professionals in the field.

The EnviroLink Network, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, is the largest and most frequently consulted online environmental information resource on the planet. As of December 1996, over 5.3 million people per month were turning to EnviroLink for the most comprehensive, up-to-date environmental resources available. You can visit the EnviroLink Network on the Internet at: http://www.envirolink.org The EnviroLink Network is partnering with America Online (AOL) to create an environmental community area on the AOL system, which currently has 8 million subscribers.
