In email from PA Sen. Katie Muth (D-44), 3/9/20. See video with more info from Sen. Muth here.
On March 9, I joined PennFuture, Rep. Sara Innamorato and many activists to raise awareness to the harm of House Bill 1100 “Energize PA.”
HB1100 seeks to drastically expand the gas and petrochemical industries across Pennsylvania at a time when we need exactly the opposite. Our Commonwealth should already be transitioning to clean, renewable energy, but the majority of the General Assembly continues to fail to address the climate crisis.
This bill would continue to perpetuate corporate welfare for the fossil fuel industry, an industry that only prioritizes their profits, not the health, well-being, or safety of workers, the public, or the environment. We have a constitutional right to clean air, land, and water. If HB1100 becomes law, it will have harmful ramifications for generations.
I stand in solidarity with those who are asking the governor to veto House Bill 1100!
