    West Virginia threatens all government regulations that protect the public, not just the EPA. It is also concerning since the Supreme Court has recently taken an anti-agency regulation stance on many cases.

The Majority opinion stated: “It is indisputable that the public has a strong interest in combating the spread of the COVID-19 delta variant…but our system does not permit agencies to act unlawfully even in pursuit of desirable ends…it is up to Congress, not the CDC, to decide whether the public interest merits further action here,”

    I have transitioned out of the National Director position at Move to Amend and my long-serving colleagues have stepped forward as co-leaders.

There is still much to do – including, and beyond, passing the We the People Amendment. It is crucial that we continue to work in coalition to create an authentically inclusive democracy movement equivalent in scale to the forces that have caused and continue to fuel the enormous crises we face.
