LETTER: WGA promotes sharing of renewable energy lease revenues


The Western Governors' Association (WGA) sent a letter on June 11, 2015, to U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources leadership reiterating the Western Governors’ longstanding support for the sharing of revenues derived from renewable energy leasing on federal lands with impacted states and counties. WGA emphasized the costs that states and counties incur from the development and operation of such projects and explained, "Shared lease revenues from renewable energy development can be used by state and local agencies to support land, water and wildlife conservation in affected areas." Read, download the Letter
