Dan Feltes on Environment
Would join lawsuits taking on our polluters
Q: Tighten or loosen environmental laws?
Dan Feltes: Tighten. As governor would "join lawsuits taking on our polluters to ensure that those who destroy our environment and natural resources are held accountable."
Chris Sununu: Mixed. Sued chemical company for drinking water contamination. Signed bill banning offshore drilling. Supported more reliance on natural gas and nuclear power.
