This vote works to undo one of the worst recent attacks on our public health.
The House of Representatives recently passed a new Interior-EPA appropriations bill — and attached to the legislation was an amendment that blocks the Trump Administration from finalizing an attack on a crucial public health protection.
The Mercury and Air Toxics Standards limit the dangerous pollution — like mercury, arsenic, acid gas, and lead — spewing from America's coal-fired power plants. In doing so, it prevents up to 11,000 American deaths, 4,700 heart attacks, and 130,000 childhood asthma attacks every year. It is key to our health and safety.
And your representative voted to protect it — and to protect us in the process. Take action today to send a thank you note!
Thank you for supporting the #190 Schrier Amendment to the Interior-EPA approps bill
Dear [Decision Maker],
