According to Ms. Verdi:
"A good portion of my job is researching energy legislation for state senators, representatives, and their staff. I also am able to write about energy legislation. Recently I helped write a paper about state policy options for alternative fuels. I also help plan meetings and will be going to Washington, D.C., this week to help with the NCSL Spring Forum. I am really enjoying the work, and the master's program at DU definitely gave me a great background for this line of work."All of us at DU wish Julia much success as she contributes in a very real way to helping state legislatures have a better understanding of state energy policies.
