Federal Issues & Congress

Federal Government

The National Sierra Club takes the lead on lobbying the President, Congress and federal agencies to promote sound environmental policies.  They work closely with the Delaware Chapter on policies that effect our environment and also collaborate on regional initiatives such as reducing impacts from coal-fired plants, advocating for clean transportation and reducing greenhouse gases.  The Delaware Chapter keeps a close watch on federal activities that impact our air and water quality.  This includes proposals for airgun seismic testing off the Atlantic; off-shore drilling off our coastline; fracking for oil and gas; and impacts from the rollback of environmental laws such as the Environmental Protection Agency's failure to enforce pollution controls on dirty coal plants and much more.
