If the North Carolina legislature had a Dr. Frankenstein working inside the General Assembly, he would certainly be the author of Senate Bill 612 (S612). S612 is a bill with many bad ideas all sewn together into one monster proposal that, if passed, could have disastrous effects.
If passed, S612 would: allow power plants to contaminate groundwater beneath surface drinking water supplies; exempt huge areas of private property from the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico clean water buffer rules; and prohibit local environmental ordinances that are more stringent than state or federal statutes or regulations.
These are just a few of the backwards proposals this bill would allow. Send a message to your state legislator urging them to oppose Senate Bill 612!
I'm writing to you today to urge you to oppose Senate Bill 612. S612 is filled with many bad proposals that would move North Carolina's important clean air and clean water protections backwards. If passed, this far-reaching bill would degrade common sense protections for North Carolina communities.
