Ocean acidification bill to be heard on the February 13

Sen. Ranker (D-Orcas Island) has introduced SB 5547 to adopt recommendations of the Governor’s Ocean Acidification Panel. It has been scheduled for public hearing in the Senate Energy & Environment Committee on February 13. In addition to creating a council to address ocean acidification, this proposal authorizes cities to extend sewers outside of urban growth areas to reduce acidifying runoff when recommended by the new council and the Department of Ecology.

Please provide any thoughts to Carl Schroeder.
