The US Department of Defense has asked - and the US Congress has granted - broad exemptions from a number of environmental laws. These laws (like the Marine Mammal Protection Act and the Environmental Protection Act) were the foundation of the recent legal win which prevented the Navy from deploying LFAS worldwide.
Please ACT NOW and let your Representatives and Senators know that you want them to restore environmental laws.
