Please vote NO on HB 1281
Please vote NO on House Bill 1281. HB 1281 strips our local governments of the ability to respond quickly to a water shortage and set outdoor water use restrictions greater than those imposed by the states drought response committee without first getting the Georgia EPD Director's approval.
Governor Perdue has mandated that counties and cities under Level Four drought designation reduce their water use by 10 percent. Local governments must be able to quickly implement water restrictions they deem necessary in order to meet this requirement and to ensure that we do not run out of clean, safe drinking water.
Please vote NO on HB 1281.
