A new threat to strong coal ash regulations, the Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act of 2013 (HR 2218), has been introduced in the House. Share with Twitter Tell Your Friends

Take Action: Coal Ash Is Threatening Our Water Take Action: Coal Ash Is Threatening Our Water

A new threat to strong coal ash regulations, the Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act of 2013 (HR 2218), has been introduced in the House. This bill would leave at-risk communities continuing to live with coal ash pollution like arsenic, selenium, and lead, and it would provide no assurances for protecting health, water sources, or air quality. The new bill leaves citizens nowhere to turn if their state cares more about catering to the coal industry than protecting their families.

Take Action
Tell your representative to support real coal ash protections and oppose HR 2218.
