Vision 2010: President Obama's Budget, Clean Energy & The Environment
|July 14 2009|
President Obama has in two short months set the nation in a new direction when it comes to transitioning to a clean energy economy, stopping global warming and protecting the environment.

The proposed budget sets the stage to reinstate the polluter pays rule, which would ensure polluting industries pay for the toxic legacy they’ve created at Superfund sites throughout the nation. Funding the Clean Water SRF would enable states to make much-needed sewage repairs and upgrades, making our lakes, rivers and streams safer and cleaner. Ending subsidies to Big Oil would free billions of taxpayer dollars that could be more wisely invested rather than underwriting windfall profits for oil corporations.
The time for action on these issues is now. The president’s proposed budget would bring significant environmental and economic benefits to communities in this state, and put America on a path to a cleaner, cooler, more energy secure future.
