Tell your Representative to vote yes on HB 1331
Right now, the Indiana House of Representatives is considering legislation (HB 1331) that would remove unreasonable restrictions by homeowners’ associations (HOAs) that currently keep too many Hoosiers from producing their own electricity from the sun. If passed, this HOA Solar Access bill would be a milestone for solar rights in Indiana.
Email your representative now to urge them to vote yes on HB 1331. Time is of the essence, as the bill must pass out of the House by February 25 if it’s going to succeed in the Senate and become law this year!
Making a difference
While emailing your representative is an important action you can take to support HB 1331, there are several other opportunities for you to make a difference:
- Share this action with your friends, family and colleagues so they can contact their representatives as well to urge a yes vote on HB 1331.
- Call your representative at their office by using the “Find Your Legislator” tool. Simply enter your address to get your representative’s phone number. You can tell the office that you support sensible reform that supports Hoosier property rights by removing unreasonable restrictions on generating solar energy from homeowners’ associations around the state.
- Attend a “Third House” meeting to speak with your Representative face-to-face. During the session, legislators hold district meetings around the state to hear from their constituents. You can use this helpful listing of local meetings from the ACLU to find a Third House meeting near you so that you can tell your Representative in-person that you support HB 1331 and they should vote yes on the bill.
