Leading Environmental Groups Work with Obama’s Team to Tackle Top Issues

112508_transition_recommendations Nearly 30 environmental, science and conservation groups presented their top policy recommendations to President-elect Obama’s transition team yesterday.

Representing millions of Americans, the groups provided a document laying out recommendations on key federal agencies and issues, including land, air, water, oceans, and public health.

The document demonstrates agreement with Obama’s call to increase investment in clean, renewable energy as his top priorities. Such investments would re-power America and help stabilize the economy over the long-term.

The full recommendations are available at http://ga3.org/soe/transition.html
