Arnold Serves Notice at EPA


California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger officially notified the EPA today that he will sue in 6 months if the agency hasn’t granted California a waiver for stricter air quality standards by then. (Six-months’ notice is required by law.) The state first started trying to implement the standards in 2005, but officials had to wait for the ruling in this month’s Supreme Court decision, which debunked the EPA’s claim that it doesn’t have the authority to regulate emissions. You go, Manlie Man!

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
