At CLF, Sandy’s advocacy has included litigation to halt construction of the Circ Highway outside Burlington, Vermont – an outdated, expensive and polluting highway project and replace it with increased transit and lower cost and more effective upgrades of existing roads, and litigation to close Vermont Yankee, a tired old nuclear power facility in Southern Vermont, and more than doubling energy efficiency efforts that allowed Vermont to avoid relying on more costly and polluting power plants.
