Following morning business, the Senate will resume consideration of the motion to proceed to S.754, Cybersecurity.

Did you know … Restore


Habitat
In the course of building and renovating homes, a tremendous amount of material gets dumped into landfills — by some estimates 25% to 40% percent of the US overall waste stream.  A percentage of the “waste” is still quite usable, just not by the current owner as the “waste” needs to be prepared for resale.

– the first ReStore opened in Austin in 1992 and has saved more than 13million tons of material from going into local landfills
