A.G. Schneiderman's office press release -------- Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman – part of a coalition of 14 attorneys general, the State of Colorado, and the City of Chicago - submitted comments in opposition to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed 27-month delay of a vital rule aimed at preventing tons of methane emissions-- a powerful greenhouse gas – from new sources in the oil and gas sector. “Yet again, the Trump EPA is putting polluters before public health,” said Attorney General Schneiderman. “Attorneys General have not hesitated to act when the EPA has failed to meet its obligations to protect our environment and our health. The threat of climate change is real – no matter how many times the Trump administration tries to shove it under the rug – and we’ll do what it takes to protect the people and communities we serve.” To learn more click on the picture below to read the release.
