Oppose Changes to the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards
Speak up today to oppose proposed changes to the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards rule. The proposed rollback would undermine current regulations on coal power plants and would allow more air pollution that is detrimental to our health, to wildlife, and to natural ecosystems. The Environmental Protection Agency is accepting comments through April 17th.
Speak up for Massachusetts Park and Trail Funding
The state budget is now being considered by the Massachusetts House of Representatives. The Department of Conservation & Recreation’s staffing for operating state parks is down 31% since 2008. AMC supports an increase in the state budget for State Parks through an amendment that was offered by Representative Pignatelli and co-sponsored by 48 other Representatives. Speak up today to encourage your Representative to support this amendment or to thank your Representative if they are already a co-sponsor.
