From the South Yuba River Citizens League:
California's rivers need your help to stop a bill that has dangerous implications for environmental review and public participation. In short, H.R. 4513 would require federal agencies to limit NEPA (National Environmental Protection Act) customer_request_form for all renewable energy projects - which would include new as well as relicensed DAMS - to the applicant's proposal and the no action alternative. IT WOULD ALSO LIMIT PUBLIC COMMENT to these alternatives.
This bill could seriously effect the re-licensing process of dams on rivers across the state.
Please write a letter to your representative. LETTERS ARE NEEDED BY THE BEGINNING OF THIS COMING WEEK! (The week of June 13th.)
