Gov Reynolds: Remove Lozier from the IUB!

Start: September 08, 201711:00 AM

End: September 08, 201712:00 PM

We'll meet on the west steps of the Iowa State Capitol building for a brief press conference. Then we'll visit the Governor's office and call on Governor Kim Reynolds and other members of the Executive Council of Iowa (Paul D. Pate, Secretary of State; Michael L. Fitzgerald, Treasurer of State; Bill Northey, Secretary of Agriculture; and Mary Mosiman, Auditor of State) to remove Richard W. Lozier, Jr. from the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB). Former Governor Branstad appointed Lozier to the IUB. It's time for Governor Reynolds to undo this clearly inappropriate appointment.

Sign the petition here:

As legal grounds for this petition, we cite “gross partiality” as defined in Chapter 66.26(3) of the Iowa Code. Mr. Lozier’s strong connections to Energy Transfer Partners as the attorney for the MAIN Coalition represent clear partiality, not only toward the Dakota Access pipeline but toward any similar proposals likely to come before the IUB in the future.

On September 8th & 9th, we're taking action across the country to #StopETP and defend indigenous rights and our water, land, air, and climate.

By taking coordinated action targeting ETP, we will launch a broader, sustained effort to disrupt ETP’s business-as-usual until the company withdraws their unnecessary and damaging pipeline projects, stops violating human rights, and stops polluting the air, water, and climate.

Please contact your action host for any specific questions about your action, and please bring your friends out to the Day of Action to #StopETP!
