Don’t Let Big Polluters Weaken the Clean Air Act -- Read more. Take Action: Don't Let Big Polluters Weaken the Clean Air Act

Right now, pro-polluter lobbyists and their allies in the U.S. Senate are working around the clock to pass legislation that would weaken the Clean Air Act. Their bill would block life-saving clean air protections that keep us safe from dangerous mercury, lead, dioxins, and toxic acid gases. Big Coal and Oil are trying to sneak the legislation through by attaching it to a transportation-funding bill in the hopes that we won't notice. Let's show them that they can't fool us and that we won't stand for any attempts to weaken protections for our air.

Tell your senators to oppose any attempts to weaken the Clean Air Act today!

Tell your senators that America needs a transportation system that ends our dependence on oil.
