NC's newest environmental threat: Our own government

When the health and welfare of citizens isn't worth a dime:

A new rule could be projected to save a hundred million dollars in avoided environmental damages or human illness, and be blocked because it cost one person ten bucks. Unfortunately, this example of anti-environmental policy is no longer a fringe position in the new N.C. General Assembly. SB 22 has 22 co-sponsors, nearly a majority of the Senate right there. … Clearly, conservationists are going to have our hands full fighting for our natural resources and public health this year.

The above quote originated with NC's League of Conservation Voters, another worthy non-profit that deserves our attention and support.
