Earthjustice Lauds President Biden’s Leadership to Advance Environmental Justice and Tackle the Climate Crisis
Jan Hasselman, Attorney, Northwest Office, Earthjustice: “It is a more complex legal scenario, but they could do it tomorrow as it’s operating without a permit and has been declared illegal by federal courts.”
Jill Tauber, Vice President of Litigation for Climate & Energy, Earthjustice: “The last four years have been an unrelenting assault on our public health and environmental protections on an unprecedented scale. But while we’ve lost a lot of time, and while certainly there is much damage to undo, [Biden’s order to review the agency rules] is a commitment to do just that — to as swiftly as possible reverse the destructive policies of the Trump administration and also recognizing that that’s not enough.”
Jan Hasselman, Attorney, Northwest Office, Earthjustice: "We would certainly hope that [President Joe Biden] would be weighing in to stand up for the rights of states to have some control over the health and welfare of their citizens."
