Statement from Chase Huntley, Renewable Energy Policy Director for The Wilderness Society on introduction of S. 1775,  Public Land Renewable Energy Development Act of 2011:

“Today’s introduction of the Public Land Renewable Energy Development Act of 2011 shows we can advance clean energy and protect our great outdoors at the same time.  By making vital investments in local communities, future permitting, and natural resource conservation, the bill makes a bold commitment to affected communities. The bill strikes a good balance between the renewable energy we need and the places we love.  ”
