Another Heads Up!

I don't want it to seem like I'm deluging you with "assignments", but this stuff is important, and not nearly enough people find out about these stealth bills. The following is from Earthjustice:

Later this week, the House of Representatives will vote on two dangerous bills, H.R. 2250 and H.R. 2681, pushed by anti-environmental members of Congress. These dangerous bills will upend common sense health protections and expose vulnerable people -- kids, pregnant women, seniors and those with respiratory disease -- to toxic mercury and other health-damaging pollutants.

The bills would allow thousands of plants across the country to burn industrial wastes -- tires, plastics, waste chemicals and used solvents -- without doing anything to control or monitor the resulting toxic pollution. People in neighboring communities would not even be able to learn the identity of the pollutants to which their families would be exposed.

These bills are radical rollbacks of the Clean Air Act's most basic protections. Please make a stand for clean air again by asking your representative to stand up for people, not polluters. Tell them to vote NO this week on H.R. 2250 and H.R. 2681.
