Congress must pass a spending bill for this fiscal year — or risk a government shutdown. But anti-environment legislators, backed by President Trump and his climate-denying allies, are using this deadline to advance their extreme pro-polluter agenda. They’re weighing down the spending bill with dangerous proposed budget cuts to the EPA and other key agencies, and with unrelated riders that would shred protections for our air, water, climate, and health.
We can stop this sneak attack against the environment, but we need to act quickly. Please tell your senators to oppose any spending bill that contains anti-environment cuts or riders!
