After the holiday season, it’s the legislative season!
The 2020 legislative session kicked off earlier this month at the Statehouse in Columbia. We’re tracking bills that deal with taking away the right of local communities to enact single-use plastic pollution bans (the ban on bans), giving DHEC clear authority to control plastic nurdle pollution, and setting a hard limit on the amount perfluorinated chemicals in your drinking water. Get educated:
Bad Idea: The ban on single-use plastic pollution bans
Good Idea 1: Controlling plastic nurdle pollution (Thank you, Sen. Sandy Senn)
Good Idea 2: Clean Drinking Water (Thank you, Rep. JA Moore)
Stay tuned, we’re going to need your help as things get moving . . .
