Asthma and Clean Air: One Mother’s Fight in Texas

Rate This

It’s getting down to the wire. On August 4, the window closes for comments on the Mercury and Air Toxics Rule. The feedback the EPA has received will set the stage for the next act in the fight for clean air.

I’ve put out links where you can send a note to the EPA, and have asked parents to join the Moms Clean Air Force—an advocacy group. If you think there is no cause to worry, check out the July 27 New York Times article, “Republicans Seek Cuts in Environmental Rules.” 

I recently listened to a call sponsored by the League of Women Voters that discussed the need for citizens to be proactive.
