America has come a long way in protecting public health and the environment over the past 45 years. Since 1970, we've cut air pollution by nearly 70 percent, while our economy has tripled in size. America’s environmental laws have provided a solid foundation for success, but they’re only part of the equation. Without resources to work hand-in-hand with state, local, and tribal partners to enforce these laws, progress isn’t possible. Laws talk the talk; but enforcement walks the walk.
