Washington, DC - Tonight, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 1734 which weakens the Environmental Protection Agency's recently issued coal ash rule. Clean Water Action Water Programs Director, Jennifer Peters, released the following statement:
Trenton, NJ -- We are disappointed in the Christie Administration selling out the environment and the public and we are disappointed in the judge’s ruling to deny our intervention in the Exxon settlement case. We are looking into appealing the court’s decision and other legal actions. Our coalition of environmental groups filed a motion to intervene in the settlement because we believed the people of New Jersey are not properly represented by the DEP. Our motion planned to show that this settlement is wrong and Exxon should be responsible for the environmental damages impacted and would uphold the Spill Act, Natural Resource Damages, and the Public Trust Doctrine.
