What’s at risk if EPA’s budget is slashed?
Deep cuts to EPA proposed by the Trump administration would jeopardize Americans’ health and safety by reducing the funds that would address pollution including lead, toxic sites, contaminated water, and much more. The result will be more asthma attacks, more toxic pollution in our communities, and more lead in our drinking water.
Before the EPA and our bedrock environmental safeguards there was more smog in our cities, more pollution in our water and less assurance our families were protected.
Climate and air protections are under attack
Efforts to weaken critical health protections come with high costs in the form of more asthma attacks, more work and school days lost, and more premature death.
