Sue and Settle Strategy to be Discussed

WESTERN ENERGY ALLIANCEWestern Energy Alliance will testify before the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Subcommittee on Superfund, Waste Management and Regulatory Oversite at a hearing on the economic and environmental impacts from litigation against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The hearing is today. Kathleen Sgamma, vice president of government and public affairs, will discuss the increased use of sue-and-settle strategies for Endangered Species Act listings and Clean Air Act regulation. Sgamma says, when environmental groups file lawsuits and the federal government capitulates by entering into closed-door negotiations that exclude the public, elected officials, state and local governments, job-creating businesses, and other stakeholders, American economic and job growth suffers.
