Clean air protections are being attacked in the U.S. Senate. A vocal minority is threatening to eliminate an historic regulation issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This regulation is a landmark Clean Air Act achievement for public health and we need your help to fight and make sure it remains.
Earlier this year, the EPA set an historic standard, regulating mercury and toxic air pollutants from power plants. This standard came after decades of delay, and sets strict limits on mercury and toxic emissions. This standard will save thousands of lives and help those with asthma and bronchitis breathe easier.
Despite resounding support from the public, Senator Jim Inhofe has introduced a bill that would nullify this historic advance. For years the League has worked to fight for clean air and protect the Clean Air Act. Now that action has been taken to strengthen this law, some Senators wants to take a step back!
You can make a difference! Send a message to your Senators today. Tell them to oppose S.J. Res 37. Tell them to limit mercury and air toxics including arsenic, lead, acid gases and dozens of others from power plants that burn coal and oil.
