Come to legislative hearing on wind siting stardards, May 12

Posted on May 11, 2009. Filed under: Wind |

Help the legislature understand the importance and wide-spread support for wind siting reform in Wisconsin.

The Senate and Assembly Utilities Committees will take testimony on Senate Bill 185 (SB 185) and an idential companion bill, Assembly Bill 256 (AB 256), the wind siting reform bills in room 411 South of the State Capitol.

As you probably know, 600 megawatts of proposed wind projects are stalled in Wisconsin due to the absence of clear, predictable regulations.

This bill will address the roadblocks of anti-wind groups, who will try to get as many of their members to testify as possible.

If we’re going to see more wind project development in Wisconsin, we must counter the anti-wind hysteria by showing up at the hearing – May 12, 11:00 a.m., room 411 South, State Capitol.

Come a little early to get a good seat and pick up your wind supporter button!

You can testify (probably for no more than 3 minutes) or simply complete a registration form with a check box to register your support. Or send a letter along the lines of the attached.

If you cannot attend the hearing in person (and we really hope that you can), you can contact your legislators through the legislative Web site. Use this link to identify your legislators if you’re unsure of who they are —
