From the Governor

We must reject the false choice between projecting jobs and protecting our planet. I believe we can do both — we can embrace the Commonwealth’s role as an energy leader, create good-paying jobs, and fulfill our constitutional obligation to protect Pennsylvania’s clean air and pure water. Listen, we can’t ignore the science here.

Gov. Josh Shapiro
