Clean Water Action has worked for years to reduce the use of dangerous pesticides in Maryland. We've seen some progress, but dangerous pesticides continue to be sold at Maryland stores and applied in open spaces across the state, putting people's health and our ecosystem in danger.

We are deeply concerned about Michiganders struggling economically during this COVID-19 pandemic and the potential for many to lose access to gas and electric in their homes. While it is encouraging that several Michigan utilities have announced policies to protect certain customers, such as extending shut-off protections and offering bill assistance, this is not enough.

Send a message to the Frederick County Council and Planning Commission to support Bills 20-04 and 20-05 and protect Frederick's forests!

These actions preceded a similar step taken by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The RRC regulates most oil and gas operations in Texas, while the TCEQ regulates most other discharges into water and air and onto land.
