Decisions made in Washington, DC, have lasting effects on Maine’s clean water, fresh air, healthy forests, thriving wildlife, and on the health of Maine people, our economy, and our way of life. The Natural Resources Council of Maine identifies and addresses the issues at play in our nation’s capital that have the largest impacts here at home.
Our advocates, members, supporters, and partners work to defend our hard-earned environmental safeguards and to ensure Maine’s elected officials in DC stand up for Maine’s environment.
Over the past three years, the Trump Administration has rolled back, or attempted to roll back, almost 100 public health and environmental laws that were put in place to protect public lands, water, air, and climate. These giveaways to polluters are harming the health of everyday Americans and our environment.
Watch our webinar and read our blog to learn more about these irresponsible rollbacks and how Maine people have been responding to these harmful attacks on the nation’s common-sense environmental and health safeguards.
