Tell your congressmen to vote "no" on H.R. 861 that terminates the Environmental Protection Agency.

Trump and the Republican party have initiated an all out war on American's land, water, and air. From laws allowing corporations to dump toxic waste into our streams - to killing hibernating bears - to allowing drilling in nature conservatories - to forcing Native Americans to allow mining on reservations - to illegally permitting DALP to build a pipeline under the Missouri River... the list goes on and on. 

A bill introduced in Congress February 3 is designed "To terminate the Environmental Protection Agency." Trump's proposed budget would gut the agency and eliminate popular programs to do basic environmental cleanup.

This is not hyperbole. This is not a drill. This bill, the budget proposal, the nomination of Scott Pruitt and leaked Trump administration plans all paint a disturbing picture of the Trump Administration's plans. Budget cuts would handcuff the agency's ability to propose, implement, and enforce our nations environmental laws. It would prevent the EPA from carrying out its mission to protect public health and the environment or ensure necessities like clean air and clean water for all. Polluters would be unchecked, and even programs that are popular in red states, like Superfund cleanups, would go away.

The good news is, we're fighting back. People have already hit the streets against this radical agenda. Join them by sending a message to your Representative and Senators to tell them to oppose this and any other attempt to eliminate the EPA.

Protect our air, land and water. Tell your congressmen to vote "no" on H.R. 861.

It's time to take a stand to protect America the beautiful!
