EFSEC bill

HB 1374, which significantly changes the way that energy facilities are sited and permitted in Washington state, still has not been scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Energy, Environment & Telecommunications Committee.

To date, the greatest concerns to cities have been elements of the bill that establish statewide energy facility standards, environmental review timelines, and notice requirements that would supersede local standards and processes. If those, or other issues, are of concern to you, please contact Carl Schroeder.
