Covering Congress: House Committee Phone Numbers

November 5, 2008

Committee staff are key contacts when covering environment and energy issues before Congress — whether you are inside or outside the Beltway. Most prefer to talk on background. The WatchDog listed Senate committee contacts on Feb. 27, 2008. Here are some current House committee phone contacts relevant to environment and energy. Some will surely change by the next Congress — and we promise to update the list then.
