Tell your legislators: Oppose anti-environment riders

Our state legislature is up to their usual tricks of sneaking anti-environmental policies into bills meant to deal exclusively with the state budget. This annual tradition has become a regular tactic used by legislators to pass bad policies they know could never stand up on their own merit.

This year’s code bills, which are mandatory steps toward budget legislation, are filled with riders that would eviscerate the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) ability to protect our air, water, and health. It’s time to send a message that this tactic is not acceptable!

Email your legislators and Governor Wolf today and tell them to oppose any code bill that includes anti-environmental amendments.
