HB 190, the Coastal Zone Conversion Permit Act, Is Released from the House Natural Resources Committee

Earlier this week, the House Natural Resources Committee released a bill I have been working on for three years to create a conversion permitting process for a limited number of sites in #Delaware's coastal zone. I spent a considerable amount of time researching and discussing this issue, trying to take into consideration the concerns that interested parties on all sides might have.I welcome input. I plan on continuing to meet and listen to groups and individuals in an inclusive, equitable and based on fact conversations throughout the legislative process. I welcome input from legislators and other interested persons and groups.This is not a slam dunk that companies will line up and open up plants. It creates a more viable opportunity for responsible companies to remediate and redevelop some of these unused brownfields and turn them into potential economic engines for our state, while still recognizing the importance of protecting our natural resources.#economy #jobs #innovation #environment
