This morning the House Energy & Technology Committee reported House Bill 5205, legislation that amends the definition of “renewable energy” to include fuel from municipal solid waste.
The League has concerns about this legislation and the narrow amendment to the Clean, Renewable and Energy Efficient Act. We would prefer to see a comprehensive review of renewable energy sources as we are expecting in 2015.
The legislation now goes to the full House for consideration.
