Thank you, Congressman Cartwright, for being a champion of the environment and a champion of the health, reputation, and future of our area! From Flint to NEPA, you represent and protect the people. We applaud you for your strength and conviction on this issue and for standing up for what is right on our behalf.
I oppose the expansion because it’s about our vision for the future of our area. I think we need to be doing things that help our area’s ability to attract the kind of high-paying manufacturing jobs that enable middle-class families to thrive, grow and allow our children to stay in the area....The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection should decline to issue what is tantamount to a 50-year permit to expand the landfill.
