Curtin & Heefner Partner Jordan Yeager to Speak
At PennFuture’s Environmental Rights Amendment Forum
Jordan Yeager will be speaking at the PennFuture’s Environmental Rights Amendment Forum. The Forum will focus on the history, meaning, and impact of Article I, Section 27 of the Pennsylvania Constitution, commonly referred to as the “Environmental Rights Amendment.” There will be legal experts, legislators and current and former state officials, who will share their perspectives on this often-misunderstood provision. In addition to reflecting on the historical context in which the Amendment emerged, Forum panelists will explain relevant case law, discuss needed enforcement, and consider the future implications of the Amendment for Pennsylvania’s citizens and environment.
