Act Now to Defeat SB 213:
Bill Sent Back to Rules Committee; Urge Representatives to Vote No
Thanks to your many phone calls and emails, SB 213 has been sent back to the Rules Committee for a lack of support.
Although it was yanked from Wednesday's House calendar, we cannot let up now. Over the next two days, we need you to continue to call your representative and urge them to vote NO on SB 213.
This bill is still fundamentally flawed and will negatively affect water and property rights. The upper Flint River and middle Chattahoochee River basins are particularly in jeopardy.
SB 213 remains a false attempt to relieve the Flint River from recurring drought and too many water withdrawals, and every landowner’s right to reasonable use of water on one’s own land is threatened.
It also will facilitate spending millions of dollars in state taxpayer dollars on "augmentation" projects (undefined) without any common-sense limitations.
This bill was first introduced during the 2013 legislative session, passed the Senate, but never received a vote by the House of Representatives. We need to make sure this bill is defeated this year!
