"Muskegon Chronicle" quotes Environmental Law Clinic Director Deborah Sivas

"If EPA had spent the last seven years developing a permitting program for ballast water instead of fighting this court battle, not only would our water be safer but our economy would be better protected," said Deborah Sivas, director of the Stanford University Environmental Law School Clinic, who represented the environmental groups who filed the lawsuit. "Invasive species come at a tremendous cost to both the environment and taxpayers."
