Corporate polluters and their friends in Congress are pushing an extreme agenda to roll back vital laws, regulations, and funding that protect clean water, reduce air pollution, and fight climate change. Please urge your representatives in Congress to stand up for commonsense protections, and to reject budget cuts that undermine vital safeguards.
The oil and gas industry, aided by the erosion of campaign finance laws and nearly boundless lobbying budgets, asserts enormous influence over legislative processes in real time while also enjoying legacy influence in regulatory frame- works. The results can be devastating to the health of the environment and the public.
We are working with Delaware Riverkeeper Network to pass New Jersey's Green Amendment and we need your help! Every person has a right to a clean and healthy environment, yet pollution and degradation are impacting every aspect of our lives. Please sign the petition urging the Assembly and Senate to support and pass New Jersey's Green Amendment.
Take action today and let your legislators know: New Jersey deserves a fair redistricting process and fair maps! Keep gerrymandering off of our ballot and out of our Constitution!
Minnesota has made progress in getting some of the most toxic flame retardants out of our furniture and children’s products, but our work isn’t done. Other dangerous flame retardant chemicals still lurk in our households. A new warning by the Consumer Product Safety Commission advises shoppers to avoid products containing a class of toxic flame retardants – warning they can cause cancer, neurological problems, and hormonal disruption, which is especially dangerous for children.
As the current Congressional session winds down, there is still work that we need our legislators to do: Reauthorize the successful Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and ensure that anti-environment and dirty water riders are kept out of any legislation, including the must-pass spending bills later this month.
During her campaign for re-election, Governor Raimondo promised to support these mandatory emissions reductions. We want to thank the Governor for her leadership on this issue, but we also want to emphasize how critical it is to take bold climate action NOW.
