Law Center Attorney Testifies Before The EPA Regarding Potentially Harmful Emissions Rule Change

In August 2010, Law Center attorney Adam Cutler offered testimony to the EPA in connection with a proposed new rule requiring further reductions in the emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrous oxide.

Adam points out that the provisions that allow companies to trade allowances–low emitting facilities can sell their allowances to higher emitting facilities–will likely result in continuing pollution in low income communities, whose members suffer the highest asthma rates and other negative health consequences from living near industrial facilities.
