The North Carolina League of Conservation Voters (NCLCV) Conservation PAC
Facing potential losses in its anti-environment majority, the desperate General Assembly has ramped up its protection of polluters’ profits over people’s rights to clean air and water. The farm bill shielded Smithfield Foods from legal accountability for infringing on the property rights of their farms’ neighbors. The budget failed to give the Department of Environmental Quality the resources it needs to detect and regulate GenX and other contaminants in millions of North Carolinians’ drinking water. It also punted yet again on the Jordan and Falls Lake rules implementation, letting developers continue to dump waste downstream.
In light of this legislative assault on North Carolinians’ basic rights, NCLCV is working to establish a Green Caucus—a group of environmental champions who will work to promote clean air, clean water, and clean energy for all North Carolinians.
