This week's Backbencher of the Week goes to FOB(Friend of Backbencher) Rep. Jay Inslee(D-WA). Rep. Inslee is a leading advocate on energy and environmental issues. To help ensure that environmental issues are addressed in the new congress, Rep. Inslee teamed with Rep. Steve Israel(D-NY) to form The Sustainable Energy and Environment Caucus. This new caucus, which drew 30-35 members to its most recent meeting, will seek to put green proposals in the stimulus bill. For taking a leading role in the legislating of green solutions we award Rep. Jay Inslee the Backbencher of the Week. Congratulations.
