Our Focus (2019)

Encourage Gov. Cooper and the North Carolina General Assembly to form an independent, bipartisan panel to conduct a transparent investigation of evidence pointing to a 15-year cover-up by the state environmental agency centered around the management of the Division of Air Quality;

A review of Dupont Fayetteville Work's annual reports to DEQ Air Quality over a period of many years, in combination with a considerable amount of other evidence, reveals a multi-year concealment by the management of the DEQ Division of Air Quality of information about PFAS and GenX chemicals in wastewater (via the scrubbers) from Dupont (Chemours) Fayetteville's large Fluorochemicals Plant adjacent to the Cape Fear River;

Encourage the head of DEQ, Michael Regan, to prepare a written report on the DEQ Lessons Learned from the agency's 20-year handling of Dupont (Chemours) Fayetteville Works and the Wilmington & Cape Fear River drinking water crisis; and

Encourage the North Carolina General Assembly to shift funds from the NC DEQ to UNC system researchers for technical assistance and support on complex facilities and environmental issues, including all matters related to Chemours' emissions and pollution control equipment.

Our priorities: Children, Education, Environment, Senior Citizens
