   Congresswoman Hartzler, along with several other Congressmen, including Congressman Hurt has presented a bill (H.R. 3244) that proposes to stop FERC from ordering the removal of existing non-conforming structures (except those built in "bad faith") from the project boundaries. Senators McCaskill & Blunt (Missouri) have proposed a similar bill in the Senate. There seems to be bi-partisan support in both houses for this effort. The next step is to craft legislation that will remove land management from FERC's hands.

I encourage you to make your comments regarding these bills to your members of Congress.  Speak up using POPVOX ...
