Guide to government responsibility in environmental issues

The Supreme Court’s 2013 ruling on Act 13 -- the Environmental Rights Amendment of the Pennsylvania Constitution -- made clear that every government official in Pennsylvania, at every level of government, has an obligation to protect our environmental rights, and to ground their decisions in sound science.
