This week, the Senate Appropriations Committee launched an environmental attack, approving a spending bill for the Interior Department and the Environmental Protection Agency that contained what Sen. Mikulski called "11 poison pill riders." They took aim at elements of the Endangered Species Act protections, the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, and most offensive of all, a rider on the Clean Power Plan—America's first-ever national limits on climate pollution from existing power plants.
The deciding vote to stop the EPA from implementing the Clean Power Plan came from your Senator, Mark Kirk. He told Politico that he didn't think he'd get any "major blowback" from environmental groups for gutting America's best shot at climate action—but you can prove him wrong.
Take action today, and tell Senator Kirk that Illinois voters like you are appalled by his anti-climate action vote.
I'm disappointed in your vote on the Interior-EPA spending bill
Dear Senator Kirk,
Thank you,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
