Promote Good Government
Protect our Air & Water Citizen Boards
Email VA Senate Agriculture Committee.
Tell members to OPPOSE SB657 and SB81.
These bills would undermine critical citizen participation, transparency and public engagement in environmental permitting, silencing important community and citizen input, particularly for fence-line communities.
These bills appear to be part of Gov. Youngkin's plan to gut Virginia's participation in RGGI, further eroding efforts to cut air and water pollution and cutting off funds for flood preparation and energy efficiency
These bills have far-reaching consequences as the citizen boards they seek to silence have placed key hurdles to pipelines and other disastrous projects in Virginia.
