Burgess on climate change markup: 'Not a well run process'

Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) has many complaints about the Waxman-Markey climate change legislation, not least of which has been this week's markup of the bill.

Burgess made his dissatisfaction clear Tuesday, tweeting from committee:
We are in the process of "marking-up" the Waxman/Markey climate change bill.


A lot of confusion over the correct way to offer an amendment.


We are being excluded from offering new amenments.


Now we have to wait 2 hour notification requirement.


We are stalled while everyone tries to determine how long their amendments have been at the desk.


Not a well run process.
