Committee hearing tomorrow!
Friday 2/15, 3:40pm Representative Ward's HCR005 will be heard in the House Natural Resources, Agriculture, and Environment Committee tomorrow at 3:40 pm. The hearing will be in room 445 at the Capitol. Here is the agenda.
Bill: HCR005- Resolution Urging Policies That Reduce Damage from Wildfires (Ray Ward) Summary: urges the government to pursue policies to reduce excess forest fuel loads and mitigate climate change. This is a way for some of our legislators to acknowledge the effect that climate change is already having on Utah.
Please attend and show your support. We will have two climate scientists there ready to speak in support of the resolution, Ben Abbott from BYU and John Armstrong from Weber State.
