Senator Murray Sponsors Bill for Turbine Relief for Falmouth
Senate President Therese Murray has sponsored a bill to provide state aid to Falmouth to decommission the wind turbines, according to the Wicked Local/Falmouth Bulletin report of Scott Giordano on June 27, 2013 (“Murray sponsors bill to fund removal of Falmouth’s wind turbines“). Co-sponsors of Senate Bill 1802 include state representatives David Vieira, R-East Falmouth, and Timothy Madden, D-Nantucket.
The Falmouth Selectmen will meet on July 1 in a working session to consider options following the defeat of a Prop 2 1/2 override–one of the possible ways to fund the costs associated with dismantling the two town-owned turbines.
A hearing on the bill has not yet been scheduled by the Committee on Municipalities and Regional Government.
