Tell your Senators to VOTE NO TO HOUSE BILL 3290­­­­­ 

Passage of this legislation would not only weaken the ability of local governments to be responsible stewards of their local waste stream, but it would also set a precedent that the General Assembly could nullify an ordinance enacted by a locally elected body acting within the scope of its authority. This could be disastrous for local environments, conservation efforts, wildlife, local economies and even Counties’ bond ratings.

As electricity rates across South Carolina climb higher and higher, utility customers are looking for ways toease the strain of rising energy bills. Many customers want to generate their own electricity, but few canafford the high upfront costs of installing a renewable energy system. Using the power of free markets, H.3425 empowers any utility customer to finance their own renewable energy project with private capital.Through this policy, legislators can help utility customers lower their electric bills while simultaneouslycreating local jobs and improving South Carolina’s economy.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposes to list the northern long-eared bat as endangered under the Endangered Species Act.  The Service also determined that the eastern small-footed bat does not warrant listing.

The northern long-eared bat is found across much of the eastern and north central United States, and all Canadian provinces from the Atlantic Ocean west to the southern Yukon Territory and eastern British Columbia.
