Amanda Goodin, Staff Attorney, Earthjustice: “Building this plant is a big step backward.”
Trip Van Noppen, Earthjustice President: “A giant gift to polluters and a devastating blow to the health and well-being of our children and communities across the country ... This dangerous proposal is designed to do one thing: cripple the agency charged with protecting the air we breathe and water we drink.”
Jennifer Chavez, Staff Attorney, Earthjustice: "The states have shown that if there's not a strong federal minimum [of water standards], it will fall below that. [The Trump administration's aggressive approach to cutting regulations] is just ignoring history and evidence of what happens when regulations aren't in place."
