Letter: Sen. Messmer. Hold a hearing on an environmental bill

The Honorable Mark Messmer

Indianapolis, IN 46204-2785

Dear Senator Messmer,

We are a group of community organizations from your district, including your new district for the election of 2022. Our common mission is to improve the lives and the environment of our members.
Hoosiers in southwestern Indiana We care about the well-being of our environment and ourselves.
Futures for our communities. We urge you to hold a hearing before the Environmental Affairs Committee on Senate Bill 255 in order to create a Climate and Environmental Justice Task Force.

Poor air quality has always been a major problem for Hoosiers from southwestern Indiana. With climate change becoming a greater threat to our public health, we have become more concerned about our public health. Purdue University research has shown that southern Indiana will be particularly affected by climate change in the coming decades, especially when it comes to extreme heat.

We are for an Indiana where health and well-being can be protected. We are for Indiana that preserves the beauty of nature. We are for an Indiana that can be passed on to future generations. SB 255 will enable our state government work towards these goals by creating a plan to adapt and mitigate climate change in Indiana. We urge you to hold a hearing on SB 255.

We are grateful for your time and for your public service in southwestern Indiana.
