Tell Gov. Ron DeSantis: veto this dirty, dangerous energy bill

A far-reaching energy bill (HB 1645) that passed the Florida Legislature and awaits Gov. DeSantis’ signature or veto would, among other sweeping changes:

  • Eliminate parts of existing state law designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and delete most references to “climate change” in Florida statutes
  • Prevent communities from having a say on methane gas facilities in their own backyards
  • Promote construction of more carbon-emission producing gas pipelines
  • Impose a ban on offshore wind energy
  • Increase Floridians’ electric bills by allowing utilities to charge for methane facility relocation

Promoting dirty fossil fuels while restricting the expansion of clean energy technology is exactly the wrong kind of energy policy for Florida. Take action to send the letter below and urge Gov. Ron DeSantis to veto this reckless bill that promotes dirty and dangerous fossil fuels, makes energy more expensive for consumers, and promotes human caused climate change denialism. Feel free to customize the letter below (optional).
