Friend of the Bay,
For weeks now, our nation has been ravaged by a pandemic that has forced communities to face unprecedented challenges and prioritize public health more than ever. As states have worked to protect their citizens, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a proposed rule that would limit the government’s use of science to regulate harmful pollution and the impact on public health. Before Monday’s deadline, tell EPA: Fulfill your mission to protect human health by safeguarding the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land on which we live!
If this rule were to be adopted, it would have significant impacts on the work to restore the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and stream, including threatening the underlying pollution reductions necessary to achieve the goals of the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint.
We have only hours left to take action and let EPA know that restricting science in regulatory processes is unacceptable. Act before the May 18 deadline and raise your voice on this important issue!
Thank you for all you do to save the Bay,
Federal Legislative and Policy Manager
Chesapeake Bay Foundation
