Primary Ask (Leave-Behind)

No Image Description

When you hold a lobby meeting, whether with an aide or with the member of Congress, they want to know what we want from them. Our Primary Ask Leave-behind sheet lets them know what we want from Congress.

Usage Instructions

We have a different leave-behind now for the House and the Senate. The Senate Leave-behind will be revised after the Senate reintroduces the Energy Innovation Act.

  • The Primary Ask for the House focuses on cosponsorship.
  • The Primary Ask for the Senate focuses on bipartisanship because our DC team feels that this will help the most to move the Senate forward on bill reintroduction.

With all members of Congress, we need to continue to educate them about the bill and to show lots of support in the district for the bill.

Leave this handout with your Member of Congress or staffer after a lobby meeting. It is also recommended that you use this ask to guide your conversation with them.
