Judge Advances States’ Fight Against Rule Changes to Weaken Endangered Species Act

Kristen Boyles, Attorney, Northwest Office: “In granting the motion to dismiss, he gave us 21 days to file an amended complaint that addresses facts he felt were presented to the court in the wrong form (as declarations in opposition to the motion to dismiss, as opposed to part of the complaint).

Joint comments: NY Proposed Part 248 Use of Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel and Best Available Retrofit Technology for Heavy Duty Vehicles and Part 200 General Provisions

American Lung Association, Earthjustice, Environmental Advocates of New York, Jobs to Move America, New York Public Interest Research Group, New Yorkers for Clean Power, and Sierra Club submit comments on the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s (DEC) proposed amendments to its regulations implementing the Diesel Emission Reduction Act of 2006 (DERA).
