BENEFITING: MONTANA ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION CENTER INC
Have you heard about Pennsylvania Power and Light’s shameless suit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)? The corporation is trying to prevent the EPA from releasing publicly held documents regarding its Colstrip plant.
This is yet another case of corporate abuse of our laws, and makes you wonder just what Pennsylvania Power and Light is trying to hide. Unless MEIC gets involved, there is a chance Pennsylvania Power will succeed in hiding these public documents.
Pennsylvania Power and Light’s suit comes in response to MEIC’s two-year old freedom of information request to the EPA for documents related to any upgrades or changes that Pennsylvania Power’s Colstrip plant has undergone. These documents will shed light on how the plant has been running, and if it is in compliance with the Clean Air Act or if it is breaking the law by having out-of-date and weak pollution controls.
We need your help to make sure Pennsylvania Power and Light’s dirty secrets are revealed!
MEIC wants to intervene in this suit to fight back and hold the corporation accountable, but this is an expense we had not anticipated. I am asking you to please give an emergency donation to help MEIC offset the cost of defending our right to public documents.
Colstrip is Montana’s single biggest polluter, and the 8th largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the entire country. If changes have been made to the plant, but its pollution controls have not been upgraded, you and I have a right to know.
MEIC is working to keep Montana’s air and water safe for you and your family – but we need your help. Please send in your donation today and help force Pennsylvania Power and Light to tell the truth and act in the best interest of Montana instead of thinking only about its “bottom line.”
