TELL YOUR SENATORS: OPPOSE ALL DIRTY AIR AND WATER AMENDMENTS!

The Senate could vote THIS WEEK on several annual spending bills to fund the government, but some senators are threatening to use these must-pass bills as a way to block crucial environmental standards that protect our waters and fight climate change. Send a message to your senators today to tell them to stand up for clean air and water!

Senators McConnell, Shelby, and Hoeven are likely to offer outrageous amendments that would cripple two of the Environmental Protection Agency’s commonsense rules to protect our air from dangerous carbon pollution and safeguard our small streams and wetlands. The EPA’s Clean Power Plan would finally place federal limits on carbon pollution from power plants, which is contributing to climate change and jeopardizing our health. The new Clean Water Rule protects the small streams and wetlands that provide drinking water for 117 million Americans by closing loopholes that currently leave them vulnerable to pollution.

These two rules are absolutely vital to protecting our water and climate for generations to come. Tell your senators today to oppose these dirty amendments and protect our water and air!
