Go Betty! Local Coalition Stands with Rep. McCollum Against Unprecedented Clean Air Rollbacks

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-St. Paul) joined Environment Minnesota and the American Lung Association at Children’s Hospital to condemn U.S. House-passed legislation to indefinitely delay the cleanup of dangerous smog, soot, mercury, and other toxic pollutants from power plants nationwide.

Last Friday, the U.S. House passed H.R.2401, a bill that puts the lives of Americans at risk by subjecting to indefinite delay the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Mercury and Air Toxics Rule and the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule.

The bill puts the interests of America’s biggest corporate polluters over the general American people. See which polluters are your neighbors HERE and also FULL STORY HERE.
