Background on SERC:

SERC is a collaborative project of the Natural Resources Defense Council and
Defenders of Wildlife that acts as a national clearinghouse for innovative
state environmental policies. Once a state policymaker decides that the he
or she likes a particular approach, SERC gives them the tools necessary

their state. In addition, SERC serves a watchdog function of identifying
harmful environmental trends and giving state policy makers the tools to
stop them.
