For four decades, the Environmental Protection Agency has used the Clean Air Act to protect the health of millions of Americans - including children, seniors, and the most vulnerable among us - from dozens of dangerous air pollutants. Now senators, led by Sen. Inhofe (R-OK), are trying to block the EPA from reducing air pollution under the Clean Air Act. The Senate will vote today on amendments that mirror Sen. Inhofe's damaging Energy Tax Prevention Act of 2011. Urge your senators to vote against any proposals to block or delay the EPA from doing its job of protecting the public from air pollution. The Capitol Switchboard can be reached at 202.224.3121 or you can send an e-mail. For more information, please contact at 202.387.2800.
