Clean Air Act (plea from American Lung Association)


Recommended Posts

I received this e-mail last night, from The American Lung Association. Since our efforts seem to be only temporary, we need to continue taking action if we want to ensure that the CLEAN AIR ACT is not weakened by our current government:


Thousands of letters were sent to help protect our air. Thanks to your letter, Heather, your Senator voted to protect public health. Today, March 9, 2005, the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee voted 9-9 to defeat S. 131. This is a big victory in our quest to protect the Clean Air Act from weakening changes. Unfortunately, we will need to continue to fight against this effort to weaken the Clean Air Act. Supporters of this measure vowed to resume efforts to amend the Clean Air Act later this year.

The American Lung Association applauds the Senators who acted to protect the health of their constituents by stopping the ill-conceived bill.

Please call and thank your Senator for standing up for public health, protecting the Clean Air Act and voting NO on S. 131

Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT), 202-224-2651, 406-329-3123

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), 202-224-3553, 415-403-0100

Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE), 202-224-2441, 302-573-6291

Sen. Lincoln Chafee (R-RI), 202-224-2921, 401-453-5294

Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), 202-224-4451, 212-688-6262

Sen. Jim Jeffords (I-VT), 202-224-5141, 802-658-6001

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), 202-224-3224, 973-839-8700

Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT), 202-224-4041, 860-549-8463

Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) 202-224-2854, 312-886-3506


Because the supporters of S. 131 vow to bring this ill-conceived bill back, every Senator needs to hear about the public opposition to weakening the Clean Air Act. Visit the web address below to tell your friends about this.
