Greening Your Community: Lafayette
February 8 @ 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm
Join HEC for a Greening Your Community event at the West Lafayette Public Library!
Want to learn what you can do to have your voice heard on environmental
legislation that affects the air we breathe and water we drink? Indiana legislators
are back in session and considering legislation that could weaken regulation of
polluting factory farms, impair our environmental agency’s ability to issue
protective permits, take away incentives that are critical to expanding roof top
wind and solar, among other dangerous bills.
Kim Ferraro, Senior Staff Attorney and Director of Agricultural Policy with the
Hoosier Environmental Council (HEC), will share the latest information and answer
your questions about these proposed environmental bills and priorities in this
important budget-making session of the Indiana General Assembly and how you
can get involved.
Wed., Feb. 8th
5:15 pm: Informal hellos and appetizers
5:30-6:30: Update & Your Questions
