Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Denies FirstEnergy’s Request To Transfer Pleasants Plant Ownership
Thomas Cmar, Attorney, Earthjustice: “The state really has an opportunity here to show us that none of these legal efforts are necessary. If the state were to do its job, we wouldn’t have ever needed to pursue a federal lawsuit. This is an opportunity for the state to finally face up to the situation that’s been created in Herrington Lake and force the company to come to the table and offer up real solutions for how to clean up its mess.”
Lisa Evans, Senior Administrative Counsel, Earthjustice: "EPA’s imminent 'reconsideration' of the coal ash rule means only one thing, EPA is again turning its back on public health and safety and siding with the polluters. The EPA’s status report is just another example of agency policy to kowtow to corporate interests."
