SB 037 - A Bad Energy Transition Bill

Sen. Duane Ankney, (R-Colstrip), SD 20

Senator Duane AnkneyThis bill creates an complex and expensive tangle of requirements for the owners of the Colstrip plant when they close the facility. The bill causes conflict with existing remediation requirements for the Colstrip plant and would allow the plant owners to self-bond for their cleanup liabilities. The bill takes a good idea and morphs it into a complex, expensive, unpredictable, and largely redundant process.
