Stop the Dirty Budget!

July 25, 2017

President Trump and some in Congress are advancing a federal budget that threatens our health, slashing funding for programs that keep our air and water clean and passing ideological policy riders that gut public health protections.

For example, the House's version of the energy and water appropriation bill would cut funding for EPA clean energy programs by $1 billion – that's almost half!

Besides attacks on EPA's budget, certain member of Congress are including unnecessary riders (amendments not centrally related to the bill) intended to further weaken environmental protections at the behest of industry. Dangerous riders include:

  • allowing the EPA to withdraw the Clear Water Rule without accepting any public input;
  • delaying EPA's latest health standards for ground-level ozone smog pollution for ten years.

Tell your member of Congress to reject funding cuts to EPA and all anti-environmental policy riders.

Using the budget to pass anti-health, polluter-friendly policies is unacceptable. Write your members of Congress!
