City of Bloomington, Office of the Mayor

 

Dear Governor Pence,

I write to encourage a veto of Senate Bill 340.

One area where Republicans and Democrats should agree is the critical need to conserve our precious resources. SB340 runs counter to that philosophy.

Our city government has successfully implemented an energy efficiency program - in fact, demand was tremendous. All citizens, especially lower income residents, save real money when energy efficiency increasees. Benefits to our environment are obvious.

If a review of Energizing Indiana is needed, a study should be undertaken by the legislature and/or administration rather than the shortsighted repeal included in SB340.

I appreciate you considering the many and varied requests you're receiving to veto the legislation.

 

Respectfully,

Mark Kruzan, Mayor

City of Bloomington
