House Administration Committee Hearing June 14 @ Noon
The Delaware Green Amendment (HB 220) received its first hearing of this year before the House Administration Committee on June 14th and was successfully voted through. Thank you to all who submitted testimony and/or showed up to testify.
The language of the Delaware Green Amendment is simple, clear and impactful reading:
Section 22. The people of Delaware have an inherent and inalienable right to a clean and healthy environment, including water, air, soil, flora, fauna, ecosystems and climate, and to the preservation of the natural, cultural, scenic and healthful qualities of the environment. The State’s natural resources are the common property of all the people, including both present and future generations. The State, including all branches, agencies, and political subdivisions, shall serve as trustee of the State’s natural resources and shall conserve, protect, and maintain these resources for the benefit of all its people. This provision, and the rights stated herein, are self-executing and on par with other protected inalienable rights.
