Tell the EPA: Clean up toxic air pollution
I strongly support the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) and urge you to reinstate the implementation of these standards and to make them even stronger.
Power plants spew hazardous pollution into our air every day, causing serious health and environmental impacts, including increased risk of neurological illnesses and nerve damage. Kids are especially vulnerable to the developmental impacts of mercury.
The MATS have been successful in limiting these impacts, helping reduce mercury pollution by more than 85% since their implementation in 2012. That's why I'm calling on EPA to reinstate the enforcement of these lifesaving standards to ensure that every American has clean air to breathe.
