INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The Hoosier Environmental Council (HEC) will host the first of four monthly statewide online environment seminars on Friday, January 25, 2013 at noon (EST). The topic of the first hour-long webinar will be threats to Indiana environment or our air, land and water quality due to short-sighted legislation in the Indiana General Assembly.
HECs webinar series is designed to help citizens, policymakers, organizational partners and the media be better informed on environmental public policy. The webinars will feature senior policy staff and lawmakers working on efforts to clean our air, land, and water. The first webinar, on January 25, will feature HEC senior policy staff discussing a number of bills that would threaten Indianas environment.
Our Indiana environment is very important, and we have made welcome progress in improving air, land and water qualities, yet national rankings show our state is struggling to be a competitor in terms of our environmental quality. “Were concerned that pieces of legislation in the Indiana General Assembly written with an intent to favor special interests rather than the public interest, would set us back further”, said Jesse Kharbanda, executive director of the Hoosier Environmental Council.
The webinars are free and open to everyone. Participants only need to register to participate.
