Environment: House ignores small business owners’ pleas

The House has passed an environmental policy bill that adversely affects many of our small businesses. Generally, big corporations with highly paid lobbyists were given the run of the Environmental committee while small businesses’ access was largely squelched.

Write or call all members on the House and Senate environmental committees and tell them you support small businesses. 1) Keep  programs that help small businesses in green energy fields, a future economic driver and employer, i.e., wind and solar energy. 2) Keep or further limit chemical dumping into wetlands that will hurt or destroy downstream small businesses, i.e., wild rice producers.
