PAUST LEADS OPPOSITION OF WIND TURBINE BILL

(Richmond, IN)--Wayne County Commissioner Ken Paust is leading a statewide effort to stop House Bill 1381.  Wayne County has opposed large wind turbines like those that are visible across Randolph County.  Paust says the bill would take away a county’s ability to negotiate on behalf of the community and place decisions about turbines in the state’s hands.  About 2/3 of Indiana’s counties have voiced opposition to the bill.
