This just in… Congress is set to vote on an amendment to the Interior Appropriations Bill that would prohibit the EPA from gutting the Toxic Release Inventory (TRI), the annual program that forces companies to tell you and I what pollutants they’re exposing us to in our communities. The Pallone-Solis Toxic Right-to-Know Amendment would preserve the TRI by preventing the EPA from spending any money to change it.
The House may vote on this amendment tomorrow, May 18th. We call on all responsible citizens to rally around its cause and call or write their congressional Representative immediately in support of this vital legislation. That means you! Please take a moment to help. We need the TRI and right now the TRI needs us.
The name of and contact information for your district’s U.S. Representative can be easily found here. If you’re pressed for time, a simple e-mail message can be sent from this page. For more information about the Pallone-Solis Amendment, head here. For background information on twisted plan to de-fang this important regulatory tool, read this article in the November 2005 issue of the Non-Toxic Times.
The future is in our hands. PLEASE CALL OR WRITE RIGHT NOW!
GO! DO! ACT! SAVE!
