DC Sets Up Environmental Law Showdown | On Point

It’s a big summer shaping up for environmental protection battles in Washington. Barack Obama and the EPA are pushing a raft of new measures. Republicans – and a handful of Democrats – are pushing back. On clean water, and EPA oversight way upstream. And clean air, carbon emissions, and coal-fired power plants. n greenhouse gas emissions from heavy trucks and planes. On protecting federal lands with national monument designations. On protecting the greater sage grouse. This hour On Point: we walk through the environmental battles shaping up for the summer of 2015.
