BREAKING NEWS: 5/22/13
In a very disturbing move, the Joint Finance Committee last night approved a measure specifically aimed at the public’s rights to protect the environment from high-capacity well pumping. This was done without notice and well into the evening. Here is the language of the motion:
Move to specify that a person may not challenge an application for, or a permit for, a high capacity well based on the lack of consideration of the cumulative environmental impacts of the proposed high capacity well together with existing wells when approving the high capacity well permit. This provision would apply to applications for high capacity well permits and high capacity well permits in effect before, on, or after, the effective date of the bill, and for applications and permits for which final administrative or judicial review has not been completed on the effective date of the bill.
If you have ever considered getting angry over the erosion of your rights now would be the time!
