Our state’s manufacturing base must reduce air pollution, especially in disadvantaged urban and rural communities. This enormous cleanup challenge also presents opportunities for industry, workers, and citizens to unite for a clean, just, and innovative Indiana.
Indiana ranks first in the nation in miles of polluted waterways. Agricultural runoff, industrial polluters, and recent state laws that attack wetlands have all contributed to this reality. But robust conservation funding and advocacy for new state laws can help reverse this outcome.
Toxic, outdated coal-burning power plants are yesterday’s technology. By properly transitioning electricity generation to cleaner sources, Indiana can create high paying jobs in manufacturing and construction, stop legacy pollution on our lands and waters, improve reliability and the grid, and reduce utility bills for businesses and consumers alike.
