Patrice Simms, VP of Litigation for Washington, D.C., is a guest on The Morning Show with Ken Lanphear
The Latest On: Clean Air
Chris Amato, Attorney, Earthjustice: "Global's proposal would have spewed more toxic pollution into the air, endangering the health of South End residents, including hundreds of children who live and attend [Giffen Elementary] school in the shadow of the Global facility. This has been, and continues to be, a fight for environmental justice."
Guest Speaker: Martin Hayden, VP of Policy and Legislation, Earthjustice
Patrice Simms, VP of Litigation, Washington, D.C.: "The 'Once In, Always In,' policy is part of a regulatory program under the Clean Air Act, and that program deals with the control of hazardous air pollutants. Not the things that we often think about like smog, the stuff that you see hanging over a city, but rather these are highly toxic air pollutants, things that cause cancer and birth defects and neurological problems."
