HB 2273 – Committee will take action Friday, Feb. 22nd
February 21, 2019

House Energy, Utilities and Telecommunications committee met Tuesday and Thursday, February 19th and 21st to hear from proponents and opponents on HB 2273, the Wind Generation Permit and Property Protection Act.  Executive Director, Dorothy Barnett submitted testimony on behalf of CEP and as a Reno County Resident. This bill would add prohibitive set backs for commercial wind turbines, and stop commercial wind development in Kansas. It also prevents local counties from making their own decisions about wind energy opportunities in their own communities.

Thanks to those of you who were able to reach out to your legislators and to those of you who submitted written and oral testimony in opposition of the bill.

Friday morning at 9:00 a.m. the Committee will discuss and take action on the bill. We will do our best to keep you posted on the outcome, but if you want to listen to the debate, tune it from the home page of the Kansas Legislature’s website or directly at this link.
