Two terrible bills are scheduled for committee votes this week in the North Carolina House of Representatives. These bills threaten to undermine key environmental and public health protections. We need your help.
One would exempt almost all projects from environmental review, even if tens of millions in tax dollars are being spent. The other would weaken requirements for buffers—vegetated or forested strips of land beside rivers and streams—that are among the most cost-effective ways to keep our waterways clean and healthy. This bill is a handout to polluters at the expense of taxpayers downstream.
Tell your elected officials to reject these attempts to gut North Carolina's clean air and water protections.
Please vote against HB 795 "SEPA Reform" and HB 760 "Regulatory Reform Act of 2015"
