Tania Galloni, Managing Attorney, Earthjustice: “Candidate Trump also promised clean water for everyone ... The clean water rule was there to ensure that the waterways throughout the country were clean and repealing such a rule can only lead to more trouble.”
Lisa Evans, Senior Administrative Counsel, Earthjustice: “Utilities are looking for various holes in the ground to dump coal ash, where it’s going to be cheap and unregulated. So they’re looking at municipal solid waste landfills.”
Marjorie Mulhall, Legislative Director for Lands, Oceans, Wildlife, Earthjustice: "To have a body like the Western Governors Association calling for legislative changes to this incredibly successful popular law is troubling, and certainly unhelpful in the efforts of so many people all across the country working together to make sure that the Endangered Species Act stays safe in this current Congress."
