Once again our state legislators are endorsing laws that cater to corporations while ignoring the public’s best interest. It’s nothing new, but this time it could cause permanent damage.

Senate Bill 389 – which strips state protections for wetlands – moved to the Indiana House of Representatives this week after passing the Senate. The bill is supported by the Indiana Builders Association and other construction lobbyists, according to the Indy Star, but the proposed law would strip requirements that protect endangered species and water quality.
