Urgent Action Needed: Dominion Trying to Buy the VA General Assembly

Sierra Club Virginia Chapter E-Newsletter

Dear Robert ,

The greed of Dominion Virginia Power knows no bounds. Will the General Assembly give Dominion what it wants in an election year with Dominion dangling up to a million dollars in campaign contributions to Republicans and Democrats alike? 

Just Say NO to SB1349 and Dominion! Act Today!

Right now Dominion has a bill in the legislature (SB1349 - Senator Frank Wagner) to prohibit review of its overcharges by the State Corporation Commission and to allow the company to keep those overcharges that in the past have been refunded to customers. 

Shamelessly, Dominion is using the EPA's climate action, the Clean Power Plan, as their excuse for this power grab.  Dominion is telling legislators that the costs of the EPA's climate plan will be very high, but that Dominion is willing to absorb those costs if the legislators will just freeze their rates and block the State corporation Commission from reviewing them. The problem is that Dominion is on track to score $280 million in excess profits for this past year alone.  

We need you to contact your legislators ASAP and let them know that you disapprove of this Dominion power grab and urge them to vote NO on SB1349.

We'll keep you informed on how action on this bill goes, and how your Senator and Delegate voted. Please take action today!

Thank you,


Glen Besa, Director

P.S. Here is another critical alert that requires your action.  The Mountain Valley Fracked Gas Pipeline proposes to run this 42" pipeline through the Jefferson National Forest as well as through our fellow Virginians family farms.  We need you to act today to tell the US Forest Service that you oppose a pipeline through the Jefferson National.  Click here to send a message to the US Forest Service TODAY!

P.P.S. Now more than ever your support for the Virginia Chapter Sierra Club is critical to our capacities to take on Dominion and other Big Polluters.  Click here to donate TODAY!
