The North Carolina state legislature has advanced an attack on a 44-year-old environmental law—the state Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), which guarantees that when your tax dollars are being spent on a major project, all environmental impacts are evaluated and less-damaging alternatives are considered.
HB 795—which lawmakers will vote on Monday night—guts this critical law. The bill exempts almost all publicly funded projects from environmental review, even if tens of millions in tax dollars are being spent. Plainly stated, it puts our lands, waters, and wildlife at risk.
Take action today: Tell your elected officials to reject this assault on environmental protections.
Please vote against HB 795 "SEPA Reform"
