The Supporting Home Owner Rights Enforcement Act is officially introduced in the U.S. Senate.
U.S. Senator Roy Blunt says the SHORE Act will amend the Federal Power Act to require that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission consider private property ownership when issuing and enforcing hydropower project licenses.
Blunt says the federal regulation strategies differ.
The issue of the boundary elevation is something Blunt says will be addressed if necessary.
The SHORE Act is co-sponsored by U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill, senators Coburn and Inhofe of Oklahoma, and U.S. Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming.
