Carol Browner, former Clinton administration EPA head and current Obama White House climate czar, instructed auto industry execs "to put nothing
in writing, ever" regarding secret negotiations she orchestrated regarding a deal to increase federal Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE)
Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-WI, is demanding a congressional investigation of Browner's conduct in the CAFE talks, saying in a letter to Rep. Henry
Waxman, D-CA, that Browner "intended to leave little or no documentation of the deliberations that lead to stringent new CAFE standards."
Federal law requires officials to preserve documents concerning significant policy decisions, so instructing participants in a policy negotation
concerning a major federal policy change could be viewed as a criminal act.

Personally, I'm not shocked at this. It seems to be standard operating procedure for our government today. The Senate blocked an amendment to audit
the federal reserve and the speaker of the house has blocked the audit the fed bill from coming to a vote and will continue to do so. The most
important areas of our government are completely off limits to public scrutiny.
The fact that bureaucrats are demanding that nothing be put in writing concerning something as far reaching and incredibly important as national fuel
efficiency standards comes as no surprise.
This is your government folks.
Do not stand idle while Rome burns.
As citizens you have a duty to stand up and make your voice heard.
Write your representatives:
I am demanding an investigation into Climate Czar Carol Browner's statement "to put nothing in writing, ever" regarding secret negotiations she
orchestrated between herself and auto industry execs regarding a deal to increase federal Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards.
Federal law requires officials to preserve documents concerning significant policy decisions.
I am also asking you to support a full GAO audit of the Federal Reserve system. HR1207 is ready to come to a vote in the House as is its sister bill
S604 in the Senate. Please support these audit bills.
