LETTER: WGA supports shared renewable energy lease revenues


The Western Governors' Association sent a letter on Feb. 2, 2016, to Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee leadership to communicate Western Governors’ longstanding support for the sharing of revenues derived from renewable energy leasing on federal lands with impacted states and counties. The letter expressed the Western Governors' appreciation of the Committee’s consideration of the Public Land Renewable Energy Development Act of 2015 (S. 1407), which would enact such revenue sharing. The letter noted, "Western states look forward to helping meet the current and future energy needs of the United States while ensuring protection of our precious natural resources." Read, download the Letter
