Send email expressing concern regarding Senate Bill 1600 and House Bill 2989
For a brief on Senate Bill 1600 and letter of concern on both bills, click here.
A list of recipients to email is at the bottom of this page.
Sample Letter #1 -
An email simply asking that the bill not be voted on during the current lame duck session is suggested below -
Water resources management is far too important to be rushed through in the last days of the session. We need to enact legislation the right way, with ample time for review and comment.
Sample Letter #2 -
Therefore, I respectfully ask that you vote "NO" on SB 1600 as introduced by Senator Mary Jo White today and that you vote against any water resources bill that may be introduced before the end of the session.
(your name, address, phone or email)
An email asking the recipient to vote NO on both Senate Bill 1600 and House Bill 2989 is suggested below -
Pennsylvania needs strong legislation to protect our water resources, not a weak bill that could endanger existing efforts to make sure we have adequate supplies of clean, safe water. That's why I urge you to oppose SB 10 and HB 2989, or any other bill that contains the Administration's newest water resources proposal. Instead of strengthening protection for our streams and aquifers, these bills would weaken DEP's authority to protect streams from excessive withdrawals that could harm fish and other aquatic life. They would undermine the existing authority of local governments to regulate water use and protect our communities. The bills don't give enough protection to fish and other aquatic life. They would allow DEP to waive the requirement that large users report their water use, jeopardizing the data we need for accurate water plans. And they would give an industry-dominated Advisory Committee veto power over state plans and policies that should be the responsibility of our elected officials. SB 10 and HB 2989 are a step backward, not forward..that's why no environmental organizations support them. I urge you to oppose these bills and to work with environmental groups to develop a strong bill next year that will really enable our commonwealth to effectively manage our water resources, now and in the future.
