Martha Coakley on Environment
As Attorney General, Martha enforced the state's environmental laws, helped spur the clean up and redevelopment of contaminated brownfields throughout the state, and led the way nationally on landmark environmental cases.
"Consistent with the Obama Administration's pledge to put science before politics, the Obama Administration announced its intention to utilize the unique authority Congress gave it earlier this year to revoke last minute Bush Administration regulations that undermined the vital protection provided by the federal Endangered Species Act," said Attorney General Coakley.
"The law prohibits companies from transporting hazardous waste without a proper license," said Attorney General Martha Coakley. "The civil penalty in this settlement agreement reflects the substantial risk to the public and the environment that unlicensed transportation of hazardous waste on our public highways creates."
