After @shift_jh, I went to Moab to attend a friend’s wedding. Being in @canyonlandsnps reminded me of the ongoing battle for clean air and haze free views in Utah’s National Parks. After I spoke at a public hearing in January, the @epagov issued a federal plan requiring the Hunter and Huntington power plants to install modern pollution controls. We thought we could breathe more easily, but soon after, the state of Utah appealed the plan and refused to comply. @rockymountainpower continues to endanger public health and visibility in our national parks. One thing is clear, if we don’t stand up and demand clean air, no one will. Let’s make sure we elect officials who put clean air as a priority. When I cast my ballot, I’ll be sure to vet the environmental report cards for elected officials at the @lcvoters and vote accordingly. It’s a great way to make sure you pick the right leaders at a local, state and national level. Check out their website – scorecard.lcv.org
