Litigation Project Detail

Environmental Law Project
Environmental extremist groups, activist courts, and the media foster the false notion that the environment is always threatened by economic activities. The Washington Legal Foundation’s Environmental Law Project promotes a rational balance between environmental protection, on one hand, and economic growth and property rights on the other.
