City of Bloomington, Office of the Mayor
Dear Governor Pence,
I write to encourage a veto of Senate Bill 340.
Energy must be safely and reliably delivered to Hoosiers at the least-cost possible. Consumer-oriented energy policies that create investment in renewables and energy efficiency make sense as the costs of coal and nuclear energy become more expensive.
Citing Justice Mark Massa’s long and close relationship with the project director for the proposed Rockport coal gasification plant and his work as Gov. Mitch Daniels’ general counsel when the governor pushed enabling legislation for the project, the Sierra Club, Citizens Action Coalition, Spencer County Citizens for Quality of Life and Valley Watch filed a motion asking the Indiana Supreme Court justice to be recused or disqualified from hearing a case that will determine the project’s future.
These are the issues of immediate importance we are working on right now.
