President Trump’s systematic dismantling of the EPA and water protections is a disaster in the making for New York’s water. Now, in his fiscal year 2019 budget proposal, he requests a 23 percent cut and a 12.5 percent reduction to EPA's workforce. Clean water — safe for wildlife, drinking and recreation — is only possible if we protect our water sources, and a strong EPA is critical toward that goal. Irresponsible executive orders that undermine the Clean Water Act, along with looming and potentially crippling budget and staff cuts, can destroy years of progress. We know what New York looks like without an EPA, and we refuse to go backward.
Join us in sending a message to Congress and President Trump: Stand up for the EPA.
President Trump doesn’t have the final say. Your members of Congress must stand up for New York values by rejecting budget and staff cuts to the EPA.
Tell your senators and representative to fully fund the EPA!
