Protect the Clean Air Act
The Senate is preparing to move its so-called “energy and climate” bill by July. One poisonous provision being considered would stop the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from regulating greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and lobbyists for some of the biggest corporate polluters in the country are leading the charge to take away the EPA’s authority to regulate pollution that contributes to global warming.
As oil gushes into the Gulf of Mexico after the explosion on BP’s rig, it is clear that environmental protections must be increased, not weakened to please the dirty fuel industry.
Use the form below to tell your senators to vote “No!” to the Murkowski Amendment.
