Not expecting a reply to my note, it would seem I'm getting the "standard safe form response":
Dear Mr. Garner:
Thank you for getting in touch with me again about energy policy.
You have obviously given this a great deal of time and thought ‑‑ I've learned from hearing your views. I want to be responsive to the needs of all Marylanders when I make decisions. Information from people like you is essential if I'm to reach that goal.
Again, thanks for keeping in touch with me. Please let me know if I may be of assistance in the future.
Barbara A. Mikulski
United States Senator
