When our leaders do the right thing, they deserve our support.
As the deadline for a 2018 federal budget looms, members of Congress have been using the appropriations process to sneak in poison pill “riders” that eliminate our bedrock environmental protections, putting Americans at risk of breathing dirtier air, drinking dangerous water, and being exposed to known chemical hazards.
But your Senator won’t stand for this, and has joined with others to send the Senate Appropriations Committee leadership a clear message: Instead of undermining this legislation with harmful environmental policy riders that have nothing to do with the nations spending certainty, bring forward a clean budget bill.
When our leaders do the right thing, they deserve our support. Take action today, and thank your Senator for standing on the right side.
Thank you for signing the Cardin letter in support of a spending bill free of environmental riders.
Dear [Decision Maker],
Thank you,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
