Webinar Overview:

Join NWPPA's Legislative & Regulatory program for its second in a series of policy forums intended to inform and educate its members on the current policy climate for issues important to consumer-owned utilities in the greater Northwest.  

In this forum, we will hear from Michael Taggart, legislative director for Washington Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers, long-time advocate and leader in recognizing the value of hydroelectric power as a clean renewable resource and in modernizing the hydroelectric power licensing process. Taggart not only manages policy for Rep. McMorris Rodgers but he is also the lead staffer on the congresswoman's hydro bill called the Hydropower Clean Energy Future Act. He will discuss the bill's path forward and his boss' agenda as ranking republican on the House Energy & Commerce committee in the 117th Congress.   

Also joining us is Malcolm Woolf, the president and CEO for the National Hydropower Association. Woolf will discuss hydro's role in clean energy policy, the goal and next steps in NHA's "uncommon dialogue" with environmental advocacy groups, and NHA's goals in the 117th Congress.
