3/1/2019 – Climate hearing announced / “Homeowner Solar Rights Bill” (House Bill 158) vote is Monday!

Following up on the well-received public hearing I hosted in 2017, Rep. Rob Mason and I are holding the first ever official committee hearing on climate change at 1:30 on March 6 in the House Energy, Environment & Technology Committee. If you want to send a message that the public cares about this issue, please come – we want to pack the house. High attendance speaks volumes.

Also, my “Homeowner Solar Rights” bill, HB158, is getting a full House vote on Monday. This bill would prevent HOA’s from unreasonably prohibiting homeowners from installing rooftop solar panels. Idaho is currently the only state in the West that does not have such a provision. You can easily email a message of support to the whole House here.
