America needs a healthy, well-funded EPA. It has made our air and water dramatically cleaner since it was established in the early 1970's, saving countless lives and protecting our health.
Hurricane Harvey showed us, once again, the importance of a fully capable EPA. Houston is facing a serious public health crisis from pollution—and EPA’s work is critically important to protecting the people there. The shutdown of petrochemical plants has released millions of tons of pollution in to that community.
But even as EPA works to help Texans recover, the agency is in danger. Congress has already cut its budget to nearly its lowest level in forty years, in real dollars. Now the Trump administration wants to cut it more than any other federal agency—by nearly one-third. That would devastate its ability to protect our health—and let illegal polluters get away without consequences.
Here are a few examples of the damage that could be caused by the Trump budget:
Please tell your elected representatives to stand up for our kids and oppose this dangerous turn towards a more polluted future.
Please reject budget attacks on the EPA
