There is more to protecting the environment than opposing the policies of the current federal administration, as Vermont Attorney General T. J. Donovan has been demonstrating. His office, working with his state agency, recently resolved two issues arising from violations of solid waste disposal.
Other states also continue to be active at the state level.
With all the furor over environmental actions taken by the federal government, it is wise to remember that AG's are carrying out their environmental protection responsibilities at home.
