On behalf of our millions of members and supporters across the country, we urge you to negotiate a clean FY17 spending package that is free of any damaging anti-environmental, anti-science riders. These riders have no place in the appropriations process. They would damage vital public health and conservation safeguards that families across the nation value, and would only serve to inject more unpredictability and complications into an already challenging appropriations process.
