Please take action to help stop two identical bills that are a direct attack on clean energy. We are urging you to take a few minutes to express your opposition to these two damaging bills.
The bad bills are HB2248 corporation commission; electric generation resources (Griffin) and SB1175 corporation commission; electric generation resources (Kerr: Gowan, Gray)
The purpose of these 2 bills is to overturn the clean energy rules being considered by the Arizona Corporation Commission. Those rules, which are currently in public comment, have gone through nearly two years of development and vetting. The ACC Rules are good and have strong public support. They will drive AZ toward clean energy over the next 30 years and will also save ratepayers dollars, reduce water use and pollution, and bolster Arizona’s economy.
The bills we’re asking you to take action against prohibit the Corporation Commission from doing anything without the permission of the state legislature… so it is also a big power grab by the Arizona Legislature.
Please sign in on the Request to Speak system to oppose both HB2248 and SB1175. You do not have to speak, but you can register your position on bills while they are in committee.
We’re also asking you to email members of the House and Senate Natural Resources, Energy, and Water Committees and ask them to oppose the bills.
For HB2248, contact the following:
Rep Griffin, Chair
Rep Stahl Hamilton
For SB1175 contact the following:
Senator Kerr, Chair
