Your URGENT Action is Needed: Protect Clean Air Standards for PA

URGENT ALERT * LAME DUCK SESSION

PROTECT CLEAN AIR STANDARDS
FOR PENNSYLVANIA

VOTE SCHEDULED FOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 13th


Even though the elections are over, there is a two week lame duck session in the PA General Assembly. There are 47 legislators who won't be returning next year and have nothing to lose. State polluter lobbyists have convinced the Republican House leadership that, before their polluter friends leave office, they should force a vote on the House floor to kill the PA Clean Vehicles Program.

Clean air protections in Pennsylvania are under attack. Next Monday the Pennsylvania House will be voting on legislation - SB 1025 - that would repeal the Pennsylvania Clean Vehicles program, which we need to cut air pollution in our state. The Clean Vehicles standard ensures that all new vehicles sold in the state will be required to use the best available tailpipe pollution control technology. Already, ten other states nationwide have adopted identical standards to help protect public health by cutting down on smog and soot pollution from cars and trucks.

Moreover, the Clean Vehicles Program will save Pennsylvania consumers more than $8 billion in fuel costs and make us more secure by helping to break our addiction to foreign oil.

TAKE ACTION:
Call your State Representative at: 717-787-2372 You can find out who represents you at: www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/home/find.cfm or if you already know who your rep is, you can find their phone number at http://piada.org/pennsylvania_representatives.htm

Tell them to stand up for clean air protections and Vote NO on SB 1025.

You can also send a form email courtesy of Penn Future (click here), but I urge you to call them as well.

FILL UP THEIR VOICEMAIL AND STUFF UP THEIR EMAIL BOXES!
