PLP signs on to support revisiting 404 permit denial at proposed Pebble Mine

Public Lands for the People joined fourteen other public interest groups in  supporting the proposed Pebble Mine and asked EPA Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler to fix a dangerous precedent set by the Obama administration.

Under former President Obama, the EPA issued a preemptive veto of the Pebble Mine before a permit application was even made by the companies exploring the project's potential. Under the former president's policy, the US Army Corps of Engineers is precluded from issuing any permits.

The letter asks Acting Administrator Wheeler to revoke the preemptive veto issued under section 404(c) to remove this dangerous precedent.
