Jenny Harbine, Staff Attorney, Earthjustice: "We expect to challenge any action that allows coal leasing to resume before [an] environmental review is completed that evaluates whether the federal coal leasing program should be reformed (or scrapped altogether) in light of its significant climate impacts and failure to generate a fair return for U.S. taxpayers."
Amanda Goodin, Staff Attorney, Earthjustice: “Building this plant is a big step backward.”
Amanda Goodin, Staff Attorney, Northwest Office: “To change any regulations or issue new ones or cancel any regulations or rescind them entirely, that decision has to be based on evidence in the record. It has to be based on science, and it has to be a reasonable decision, one that’s not arbitrary.”
