Less Shelter from the Storm

After Hurricanes Harvey and Irma recently pummeled our coasts, Environment Minnesota warned that pending budget proposals from the Trump administration and Congress threaten key programs that protect our communities from storm- related impacts. The group documented threats to programs that prevent or curb flooding, sewage overflows and leaks from toxic waste sites. Environment Minnesota also called for preventing more global warming-ueled extreme weather in the future.
