Statement by Earthworks Pennsylvania Policy and Field Advocate Melissa Ostroff:

“We praise Gov. Shapiro today for committing to act to reduce harms from oil and gas pollution and seize the opportunity to grow good paying jobs by protecting our air, water and quality of life in Pennsylvania. 

“Oil and gas companies have been given a free pass for too long to treat backyards, schoolyards and public parks like dumping grounds. Now is the time for the Governor to hold industry accountable as he recommended while Attorney General. Now is the time for bold leadership that will push us toward a healthier future where dirty industries no longer make the rules and clean energy has a clear path forward.”
