LETTER: Support for expedited review of reintroduced Electricity Reliability and Forest Protection Act

Western Governors on April 3, 2017, urged leadership of the House Natural Resources Committee to give an expedited review to the bipartisan legislation, the Electricity Reliability and Forest Protection Act, on its reintroduction. The Governors noted their previous support of the legislation, which helps ensure reliable electricity service and reduces the risk of fires and fire hazards that result from inadequate vegetation management on power line rights-of-way. The letter emphasized that “Western Governors recognize the importance of appropriate fire management and proactive wildfire mitigation” and are “committed to safeguarding and enhancing the reliability of the region’s electric transmission grid.” Read, download the Letter
