Last day for the EPA
If you needed more evidence that Donald Trump is selling this country out, along with your health and your natural resources, look no further than Scott Pruitt. His floor vote in the Senate is today. Please call your Senator to tell them all that he wants to do is dismantle the EPA and that you prefer your buildings without asbestos, your air without mercury, your environment with bees in it, and your water without coal ash in it.
1. CALL your senators and tell them you want them to vote against Pruitt as nominee for head of the EPA or do anything in their power to delay the vote (use script below)
2. CALL Democratic Senators Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) and Joe Manchin (W.V.) and tell them you abhor their support of someone whose sole intent is to dismantle the EPA: they voted for Pruitt in the Senate Committee vote in early February, and their votes in favor of Pruitt are going to offset Republican Maine Senator Susan Collins of Maine's defection vote against Pruitt.
USE THIS SCRIPT (feel free to ad-lib, of course)
Hello, I am calling to urge Senator _____ to oppose the nomination of Scott Pruitt as head of the EPA. We need a regulatory approach that looks to the future. Environmental protection should be of national concern because clean air and water flow from state to state and pollution does not stop at a state's border. Pruitt has let his own state of Oklahoma be run over by the oil and gas industry. Protest this appointment for the sake of our planet and our future.
