Unable to move Senate 331 the “Military Operations Protection Act of 2017” through the committee process, Senate sponsors have gone another route, placing the language in this year’s Appropriation Act, Senate Bill 257. If the provision remains in the bill, it would impose a three-year moratorium on the permitting of all onshore and offshore wind projects.
We need your help in getting this provision out of the Senate Budget Bill!
Please contact the Senators listed below NOW and ask them to vote NO on this anti-business legislation that violates private property rights or ask that Section 24.2(a-e) be removed from the bill. Explain that the long term impact of this provision will be to reduce tax revenue in rural areas that are needed for public services, and unlikely to provide any new protections for the military.
