 EPA Evaluation of Regulations
 
The comment period ends May 15th.  Send comments early and often.   Below are cut/paste samples or make up your own:

 
•      EPA regulations are intended to protect us and our children.  The new EPA focus is on short-term financial gains for some rather than long-term health and safety benefits for all.  This makes it harder to achieve healthy air for all and is not what our government should be doing.


•      Administrator Scott Pruitt wants states to take over the job of the EPA.  The problem with this is that states can’t confine air and waters to within their own boundaries.  We need national standards and regulation.


•      The American Lung Association “State of the Air 2017” report states that “The Clean Air Act prevents tens of thousands of asthma attacks, heart attacks, strokes, and premature deaths each year.” “One-quarter fewer people now live where the air quality hit unhealthy levels compared to the 2016 report, which covered data from 2012-2014. The greatest improvements come from continued progress in reducing pollution from power plants and transportation sources, which contributes to high ozone days and year-round particle pollution.”  We must keep and improve upon the gains of the Clean Air Act.
