    We need clean, healthy air to breathe. We also need to act on the impending climate crisis. Pennsylvania is on the verge of addressing both these issues — but a new bill up for consideration in the state legislature would rob the state of this crucial progress. Right now, Pennsylvania is working to link with the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative — a coalition of states working together to limit the carbon pollution spewing from their coal-fired power plants. It’s a common-sense, market-based solution that will protect public health by cleaning up our air, bolster our economy by investing in clean-energy jobs, and put the Commonwealth on a path to zero out pollution from the power sector.  But HB 2025, which is up for a vote in PA's House of Representatives this week, would obstruct this crucial opportunity and give a free pass to polluters — in the middle of a respiratory health emergency. 4 out of 5 Pennsylvanians agree: It’s time for the Commonwealth to have clean air and climate action. If you’re one of them, take action today, and tell your Representative to stand against this senseless attack.

    Just before the country took a moment to reflect on our history over the 4th of July weekend, the House of Representatives took a major vote on deciding our future. They passed a major piece of legislation that invests $1.5 trillion in creating jobs and rebuilding our economy to be better: Creating a safer, cleaner, and healthier future for all. Which way did your Representative vote? Use our simple tool to find out — and either thank them for standing on the right side of history, or condemn their decision to oppose this bill and refuse to invest in a better tomorrow.

    In a matter of days, the House of Representatives will choose what kind of country we want to be when we step out on the other side of this pandemic. The Moving Forward Act would clean up our transportation system, invest in a clean energy future, and protect our communities from the impacts of the climate crisis. It also includes an amendment that would provide critical funding for lead pipe replacement, prioritizing low-income and environmental justice communities.  This legislation will create jobs, spark up our economy, and create a cleaner, healthier future.

    As a majority member of the House Select on the Climate Crisis, your Representative is responsible for bringing Congress a Climate Crisis Action Plan that we need to follow to avoid climate catastrophe. Moments ago, that plan was unveiled. It is a clear, common-sense call for bold climate action that will heed the warning of scientists while rebuilding our economy and addressing the systemic injustices that put communities of color in harm’s way. This is the kind of leadership we need. Take action today, and thank your Representative for supporting the Climate Crisis Action Plan.

    In a matter of days, the House of Representatives will choose what kind of country we want to be when we step out on the other side of this pandemic — and whether we're repeating past mistakes, or rebuilding better. The Moving Forward Act would clean up our transportation system, invest in a clean energy future, and protect our communities from the impacts of the climate crisis. It also includes an amendment that would provide critical funding for lead pipe replacement, prioritizing low-income and environmental justice communities.  This legislation will create jobs, spark up our economy, and create a cleaner, healthier future.

    [TEST] The Senate has passed a bill that Sen. Schumer described as “unemployment insurance on steroids.” This is a sigh of relief for the millions of Americans who have been holding their breath, desperately trying to figure out how to pay bills and support their families during this unprecedented crisis. Make no mistake: Marshaling new resources to protect Americans’ health, safety, and bank accounts must be priority one. But the taxpayers who are currently struggling financially have the right to expect that companies getting bailed out aren’t contributing to another public health crisis down the line. We need to make sure that as the focus expands from immediate aid to economic stimulus, our investments build a better future.

    This unprecedented pandemic has made it abundantly clear: We need rigorous science to guide public health policies. But EPA’s newly-released draft risk evaluation for a known cancer-causing chemical – that is also toxic to our immune system and kidneys – cuts multiple corners that lead the agency to badly underestimate the dangers this chemical poses to our health and to our environment. This chemical – called trichloroethylene, or TCE – is found in cleaners, adhesives, and more. It frequently contaminates soil and groundwater at hundreds of Superfund sites and is commonly detected in our air – and even very low exposures to it are linked to fetal heart defects that can have life-long consequences. The Trump administration’s approach is not only flat-out illegal, but their efforts to devalue science will leave all Americans at risk.

    Our world is changing rapidly in the face of a crisis. As Congress makes investments in our future, they must build a better one – where less pollution is pumped into our air, everyone’s water is clean and safe to drink, and all communities are equally protected from the dangers of environmental degradation. We need to make sure that as the focus expands from immediate aid to economic stimulus, our investments build a better future. Let's make sure Congress knows what we expect of them.
