Fly-In Issue Papers
2009-2017

During the annual FlyIn events, Women's Mining Coalition presents a packet of issue papers to over 200 Congressional offices of Senators and Representatives. During the August summer recess many of the WMC members visit local offices of their Senators and Representatives. The issue papers for the year are presented again to Members or their staff.

Following are links to issue papers presented to Congress beginning with the 2009 FlyIn. Details of each years' visits are also available from the links on the left menu.

See the Latest Sage Grouse Talking Points (earlier versions are dated).
