Thumbs up: Eco forces unite
In an age of gutted newsrooms and cronyism between regulators and the regulated, we need as many committed watchdogs as possible, especially when it comes to complex environmental issues. The merger of two of Indiana's leading environmental advocates - the Hoosier Environmental Council and the Legal Environmental Aid Foundation - promises to boost critical oversight of our state's air, land and water resources by allowing the groups to be more efficient with their financial resources and educational outreach. The unified entity will operate under the HEC name. Stay on task, environmental champions. You are needed now more than ever.
