If you haven’t already done it, your click-to-send email to State Senators needs to go out!
Senator Stanley, together with Delegate Habeeb, are trying to rob our local governments from having a say in decisions on local infrastructure – such as substations. Delegate Habeeb’s HB 1766 has already passed in the House. Senator Stanley’s SB 1110 goes before the Senate Commerce and Labor Committee TODAY! If it does pass today in Committee, then all Senators will vote on it – probably also this week. But we want to stop it today if possible. See our press release below for more details.
We have it from trusted and experienced sources that “someone” is really trying to fast track this legislation. And from this same source, that we should focus on the Senate, since there are fewer Senators to sway and greater likelihood that this legislation to help power utilities (ie APCO, and Dominion Power) can be stopped in the Senate committee or in the full Senate. Your email can make them understand that this legislation affects ALL districts – including theirs.
By sending this click-to-send email you will be communicating that all citizens of the state (including their own constituents) expect their Senators to protect them and the authority of their local governments by stopping this legislation.
Please send your email NOW! We only need 8 Senators to VOTE NO today to kill SB 1110 in Committee! This is our chance to stop it now!
