Quotes

"Pennsylvanians can't afford to wait on another bureaucratic hurdle to clean up our air, curb dangerous pollution and build a clean energy economy,” said Joanne Kilgour, director of the Sierra Club Pennsylvania Chapter. “This misguided effort could take away our power to solve these challenges on our own, with our own experts, scientists and innovators.”"
William C Baker, president of CBF, said he hoped that the report would once and for all "put aside the age old debate of the environment versus the economy." The report, he said, clearly demonstrates that these are "two sides of the same coin."
