Thank Senator Casey for Protecting Air, Health

Monday, June 25, 2012

From our friends at the American Lung Association:

"On June 20, Senator Casey stood up for our health and voted NO on Senator Inhofe’s S.J. Res. 37, a resolution that would have overturned the EPA’s Mercury and Air Toxics Standards and allowed power plants to pollute the air without restriction. By voting “no,” Senator Casey voted to protect the air we all breathe- he voted against big polluters and for our health.

Thanks to Senator Casey, the public’s exposure to dangerous pollutants like mercury, hydrogen chloride, arsenic, and lead will be significantly reduced. Limiting the emissions of these pollutants will protect thousands of lives and prevent thousands of asthma attacks and heart attacks each year."
