Protect the Clean Air Act

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a concerned constituent of your state, I am asking you to take immediate action to protect one of our most precious and influential laws, the Clean Air Act. Since the law's passage in the 1970's, the act has done more to clean up pollution, protect public health, and create jobs than almost any other piece of legislation. But under the guise of reducing the deficit, the polluter lobby is spending millions of dollars to roll back these protections, putting at risk the well-being of the American public in the process.

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed a variety of "polluter earmarks" that would block the EPA from taking any action to clean up carbon dioxide and other global warming pollutants from coal-fired power plants and oil refineries. This would be the largest cut to the EPA budget in 30 years, and would cripple the EPA from effectively enforcing the Clean Air Act.

These "polluter earmarks" would do nothing to reduce the deficit and will only serve to promote short-term polluter profits over the health and broader economic benefits for the rest of the country.

I urge you to reject the House passed polluter earmarks that gut critical funding for important clean air standards.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
