BENEFITING: MONTANA ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION CENTER INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2013
MEIC is the lead voice for Montana's Environment at the Montana Legislature. It is the reason MEIC was founded, and since 1974 MEIC has been a solid presence at the Capitol. Because of MEIC's presence and dedicated lobbying team, Montana values of clean air, clean water, and open landscapes are guaranteed to receive attention at the capitol.
Please support MEIC's efforts to protect and strengthen Montana's environmental laws. We are hoping to raise $3,000 through small donations from across Montana. Your donation will help MEIC to be present daily at the capitol advocating for our environment, to conduct outreach to citizens and help them become involved in the 2013 session, and to produce factually accurate and timely materials to help the public understand the complex issues facing the legislature.
MEIC has played a role in lobbying to establish, protect, and strengthen almost every environmental law on the books, including but not limited to the Montana Environmental Policy Act, the Subdivision and Platting Act, the Major Facility Siting Act, the Strip and Underground Mine Reclamation Act, the Voluntary Conservation Easements Act, the Coal Severance Tax Trust Fund, the Metal Mine Reclamation Act, the Comprehensive Environmental Clean-up and Responsibility Act, the Mega Landfill Siting Act, the Water Use Act, and the Renewable Energy Standard. MEIC has also played a lead role in defeating hundreds of anti-environmental bills.
