 *** STUDY DISPROVES "JOBS VS. ENVIRONMENT" MYTH;
 *** STATES RANKED ON ECONOMIC & ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH

 States with the best environmental records also offer the best job
opportunities and climate for long-term economic development. That's the
conclusion of a study released today by the Institute for Southern Studies, a
non-profit research center in Durham, North Carolina.

 "In the 2000 elections, political leaders were still debating about whether
protecting the environment will cost jobs," says Chris Kromm, a co-author of
the report and Director of the Institute. "What this study finds is that the
trade-off myth is untrue. At the state policy level, efforts to promote a
healthy environment and a sound economy go hand-in-hand."
