As the federal and state government continuing ironing out their budget priorities, environmentalists are expressing concern over proposed funding and regulatory rollbacks. In this month's edition of WEMU's 1st Friday Focus on the Environment, David Fair discusses some of those concerns with Charlotte Jameson, Government Affairs Director at the Michigan League of Conservation Voters.
Topics of conversation:
- Elimination of Clean Power Plan by Trump administration, with a focus on how it is more important than ever that Michigan's leaders hold the line on a clean energy future for our economy and public health
- The one-two punch of proposed EPA cuts and DEQ cuts, and their impact on our environment and public health here in Michigan
- AK Steel, how proposed DEQ cuts impact state's ability to monitor air quality
