With your help, yesterday Oregon sent a strong message to EPA: No to auto emission and coal industry rules that protect industry over our children and the environment.
'We thought this is such an impactful set of standards and regulatory actions that the public here should have the opportunity to weigh in appropriately,' said Ali Mirzakhalili, air quality administrator for the DEQ on why he led an effort to organize this unusual public hearing.
"EPA wouldn't hold hearing about its rollbacks of the Clean Power Plan, vehicle emissions standards, and fuel economy standards, but Oregon DEQ did. Thank you!" - Melissa Powers, ED Green Energy Institute at Lewis & Clark Law School
