1Sky Supporters Urge Maine Senators Snowe and Collins to Support the Clean Air Act
A 1Sky-organized gathering last week in Portland, Maine brought supporters of the Clean Air Act together to urge Senators Snowe and Collins to vote 'No' on Lisa Murkowski's 'Dirty Air Act' resolution. Murkowski's resolution would nullify the Clean Air Act and end regulation of carbon emissions from dirty coal-fired power plants.
1Sky's Maine organizer, Greg Brown, said, "Basically what that seeks to do is gut the authority of the Clean Air Act, that was championed and pushed through by our own Sen. Muskie, he's a great giant of the environmental movement. I think it would be terrible to roll back the advances we're made and the good that act has done for the United States."
