Protecting Public Health Standards
The new administration and Congress are working overtime to roll back public health rules and standards. They are targeting numerous health, safety and environmental protections. Read PSR's statement on the confirmation of Scott Pruitt to head the U.S. EPA.
All of us suffer when health-protective laws and regulations such as the Clean Air Act are weakened, delayed or blocked. And children, low-income communities, communities of color, and people with chronic diseases suffer most.
Our government should be ensuring that federal agencies enforce laws that protect our water, air quality and public health—not curbing the power of these agencies to carry out their mission.
Clean air, clean water and clean energy regulations are soundly supported by the majority of people in the U.S. They know that their health relies on these critical environmental protections.
Now more than ever we must take strong action to protect our health and safety. Join PSR in our efforts.
