NEW HB FORTHCOMING BY SENATOR DEBAKAS

Hi All, 

 

Well it has been a tough "inversion season” so far and we cannot let that continue to be a “concept” (!) 

We called Senator Jim Debakas’ office today and spoke with his intern, Nick. He told us about forthcoming legislation sponsored by Sen Debakas that will include focusing on reorganizing the Utah Air Quality Board of Directors, which is currently disproportionately made up of coal, fossil fuel and manufacturing industry advocates, while maintaining board seats for medical doctors and scientists necessary to have scientific research a foundation for crafting balanced and effective clean air legislation. Details are forthcoming, when the bill receives an number you can track it here:

Exciting! Stay tuned and be involved! 

 

Thanks Sen. Debakas!
