The Pennsylvania budget passed by the State Senate currently contains several anti-environmental riders meant to block clean water and clean air protections – now and for many years to come.
If signed into law, this budget will:
· Kill proposed rules to stop methane pollution from the oil and gas industry,
· Companies seeking air and water pollution permits could bypass state oversight and get approval from private companies,
· DEP will be prevented from stopping the ongoing flow of millions of gallons of oil and gas wastewater into our rivers.
Speak out and let Governor Wolf know he cannot sign a budget that sacrifices our clean air, clean water, and a future for our planet!
