ELIMINATE THE EPA??

Lawmakers introduce bill to end EPA

920x920

The man that introduced the bill is a third generation politician making a name for himself by doing what is not right-what senior senators would not do.

I think Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation, Inc. said it best:

Florida Representative, Matt Gaetz has introduced a bill (HR 861) to end the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), stating “it is time to take back our legislative power from the EPA and abolish it permanently.”

This is the same EPA that banned the widespread use of the pesticide DDT, which was decimating bald eagles and other birds and threatening public health. This is the same EPA that achieved significant reductions in dangerous emissions that were polluting water sources via acid rain. This is the same EPA that changed public perceptions of waste, leading to innovations that make use of waste for energy creation and new recycled products. This is the same EPA that took lead out of gasoline. This is the same EPA that classified secondhand smoke as a known cause of cancer, leading to smoking bans in indoor public places. This is the same EPA that established standards for pollutants emitted by cars and trucks. This is the same EPA who established a national commitment to restore and maintain the safety of fresh water, via the Clean Water Act. This is the same EPA who increased public information and communities’ “right to know” what chemicals and/or pollutants they may be exposed to in their daily lives. This is the same EPA that Matt Gaetz, and the new administration is aiming to abolish.

How can you help? Write to your state representatives, asking them not to support bill HR 861. Tell them why you do not agree with the abolishment of the EPA, and your concerns for the environment of our planet without the support of a federal agency.
