CURRENT LEGISLATION TO USE REQUEST TO SPEAK FOR


Support SCM1012 by using the Request to Speak (RTS) system (This is a good opportunity, while it rains, to put some time into getting this system up and running.  We'll help.  Call or write with questions. scvclimatecoalition@gmail.com)

Sherry Sass, Sally Connelly and Andrea Dalessandro ask us all to support the Nogales Wastewater Fairness Act (SCM1012), because it is so important to LD 2 and all of the southern AZ region, including Tucson.  SCM1012 urges the US Congress to support the Nogales Wastewater Fairness Act, text of which follows in blue.

This bill directs the U.S. Section of the International Boundary and Water Commission to charge Nogales, Arizona, an equitable proportion of the costs for operating and maintaining the Nogales sanitation project, which should be based on the average daily volume of wastewater originating from Nogales. The sanitation project includes: (1) the International Outfall Interceptor and the trunkline, which is a sewer line that carries wastewater along the U.S. and Mexico border; and (2) the Nogales International Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The bill declares that Nogales is not obligated to contribute any capital costs of repairing or upgrading the project.
