David Henkin, Staff Attorney, Mid-Pacific Office: “You don’t need to burn the village to save the village.”
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.”
Thomas Cmar, Staff Attorney, Coal Program: "The rules were essentially establishing a standard that was many years overdue, and I think the industry has quickly adopted it because they've recognized that [failure to address the coal ponds] is a practice that needs to end. This is a significant liability for these plants."
Karl R. Rábago, Executive Director of Pace University: “Our partnership with Earthjustice enabled us to obtain just and reasonable rates for Con Ed customers.”
Chris Amato, Staff Attorney, Earthjustice: "Global's defiant response, in which the company flatly refuses to take any of the actions ordered by DEC, makes clear that the company intends to continue flouting the law and ignoring the impacted community. We call on DEC to take all necessary steps to protect the citizens of Albany from Global's rogue operation."
