The Solar Extension bill HB 2346 is alive and is now in the Senate. It supports the Solar industry in Washington state by helping to make an installation more affordable up front.
The Bill will have a committee (Senate Energy, Environment and Telecommunications Committee) hearing on Wednesday, February 24. To get out of this committee and on to Ways and Means then Senate floor, we need to stress the jobs and good for the economy message. Please contact your state senator and let them know you support the Solar Extension bill as it encourages this industry and will help create new jobs in Washington state. You can call your senator/reps at 1-800-562-6000 and ask them to support HB2346. You can also email by looking them up here: http://app.leg.wa.gov/DistrictFinder/.
This weekend many reps and Senators are having Town Hall Discussions. This is another great place to ask for support for great legislation such as HB2346. The jobs and economy message will resonate with Senators more than an environmental message. The bill passed the house with bipartisan support, so with the right encouragement there is a good chance it will also pass the senate.
Thank you for considering this action. Please spread the word, constituent voices are very influential!
