EJ Forum @ OMB

Successful Meeting with OMB 

EJ Forum @ OMB
The EJ Forum had a productive meeting with OMB on June 30th. In our discussion on the final Clean Power Plan rule, we stressed our recommendations for the inclusion of a mandatory EJ analysis, mandatory reductions, and mandatory expanded community engagement as part of the plan. 

Special thanks to Sharon Lewis and Dr. Nicky Sheats for coming to  Washington, D.C. for the meeting!
