Key Actions for Environmental Advocates this Week
Contact members of the Senate Energy, Agriculture & Natural Resources Committee and the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Subcommittee. Urge them to vote YES on SB1801/HB1843 (Dickerson and Lundberg). Senator Dickerson, who is sponsoring the bill, has a rewrite amendment which will incorporate most of the recent TACIR (Tennessee Advisory Council on Intergovernmental Relations) suggestions for tire disposition. It will significantly enhance used tire recycling if passed. The steps laid out here are the only ones that make sense to truly stop the problem of illegal tire dumping and improper disposal.
