TAZEWELL (WVVA) - Although there are strict ordinances preventing tall structures -- a new bill could re-ignite the issue of wind turbines in Tazewell County.

The new bill would allow renewable energy projects over 4 megawatts to bypass those regulations -- meaning wind farms could be allowed on East River Mountain in Tazewell County -- whether locals like it or not.

Senator Saslaw from Fairfax County introduced the bill -- which now sets in a subcommittee -- awaiting introduction to the House.
