Klinker believes in continuing the bipartisan unity
Today, Tippecanoe County commissioners passed an ordinance that places a nine-month moratorium on high-volume water exports. Tippecanoe County Commissioners started this initiative in hopes of slowing the IEDC’s proposed LEAP water transfer.
State Rep. Sheila Klinker (D-Lafayette) issued the following statement:
“In each area of local leadership- whether it be state, county or city - both sides have expressed opposition to the proposed LEAP water transfer. We’ve all shared our concerns, called for more transparency, more information and an independent third-party study. I’m very pleased that this process is going to be slowed which allows more time to discuss the next best steps for our communities.
“This is not a Democratic or Republican issue, and we need to continue these bipartisan conversations to ensure we’re doing the best we can for our constituents. I’m thankful for the Tippecanoe County community, our local leadership, and our unity on this issue.”
