Dear Members,

A very dangerous bill is working its way though our legislative body. Its LD 1569. It started out as a bill to tax bottled water. It has since morphed into a bill to develop a highly politicized commission that will explore water rights along with other issues that will potentially impact public water suppliers in an extremely adverse manner.

We are asking all members to reach out to both your Representatives and Senators and express your concern with this bill. Please feel free to share our attached letter with them.

Unfortunately, in a rush to finish business before the end of the first session of the 130th the bill has already been voted out of the House and is waiting on vote within the Senate.

The attached letter is being sent directly to the Governor in hope she will veto the bill if it passes through the Senate.
Please do not assume that you can’t play a role in the outcome or your efforts won’t matter. We need your help and ask you play an active role is supporting our efforts.

Thank you
