Tell your members of Congress to co-sponsor Rep. DeSaulnier and Sen. Harris's resolution on clean air

Remember when you couldn't see 10 feet in front of you in LA? 

With a tweet, President Trump is trying to pollute the air you breathe.

In what has become his signature move, today President Trump announced via Twitter that he plans to revoke your state's ability to protect the air you breathe. 

NOTE: For more impact don't forget to personalize the subject line and leave a personal message!

Under the Clean Air Act, California has the ability to set standards for vehicles to reduce pollution. Other states can then adopt these standards to help protect you and the air you breathe. 

Now, Trump and his cronies in the EPA and the Department of Transportation are attacking that authority. California's rules have helped states clean their air, save their residents money at the pump, and reduce climate pollution. The only people that will benefit from this attack on state authority are oil companies. 

Congress standing up to this outrageous action by the Trump administration is one of the strongest actions we can take.
