ACTION NEEDED on Bill No. 68-19
AAC Council has been struggling with a piece of legislation that will help protect our trees. Developers are fighting this every step of the way. Environmentalists are fighting to strengthen it or at least use it as a starting point. The deforestation in our county is shameful and devastating.
Public hearings were held a few weeks ago and a few of our huddle members spoke. The council is scheduled to vote Monday October 21.
Amendments are being proposed to weaken the bill.
Please call and/or email your council member and other council members between now & Monday to let them know that you support the original bill – #68-19.
Amanda Fiedler represents District 5 where many of us live. Amanda was endorsed by the League of Conservation Voters but hasn’t supported any legislation that would help the environment.
