Moms Clean Air Force has created  a series of ads with the Environmental Defense Fund to express gratitude for senators in Missouri, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Virginia. Their opposition to anti-Clean Air Act amendments during Senate budget debates in March that would have blocked the EPA’s historic Carbon Pollution Standard, the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards, as well as other clean air standards and public health protections. Thanks to the courageous leadership of these and other Senators, these amendments were turned back.

All of these Senators deserve thanks for standing up for our kids’ health,” said Elizabeth Thompson, EDF’s Director of Congressional Affairs. “Congress shouldn’t ever use the budget process to cut important public health protections against dangerous, dirty and deadly air pollution. All kids, especially those with asthma, need strong clean air rules.”

JOIN US in thanking Senators Claire McCaskill, Kay Hagan, Jeanne Shaheen, Tim Kaine and Mark Warner for their opposition to budget proposals that would have gutted EPA clean air standards that protect the health of Americans. Please

WATCH and SHARE these ads, and please let us know in the comment section below why your senator must continue to support the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards. Thank you!
