Tell Congress to Stop EPA Rollbacks

In recent weeks, as the nation’s attention is focused on battling COVID-19, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has continued to move forward with weakening our nation’s environmental protections. In March alone, EPA issued a supplemental proposal to censor science in its decisions, suspended enforcement of industrial pollution control requirements, and weakened auto emission standards that would have bolstered respiratory health and slowed climate change. 

In the week of April 13 alone, EPA both announced it would refuse to strengthen air quality standards for soot despite its own staff scientists’ findings that existing standards may be causing thousands of premature deaths each year, and announced changes that undermine mercury and air toxic pollution controls.
