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. Council Bill #20-0495 will put a stop to this in Baltimore City.
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.
Please sign on below to urge Governor Whitmer and the Michigan Public Service Commission to use their powers to ensure that every Michigander has access to heat and electricity for the duration of the pandemic.
Please sign a petition to Governor Baker and the members of the Massachusetts legislature to urge them to protect our health from toxic chemicals.
If we’re serious about addressing climate change then we should be incentivizing renewable energy, not oil and gas. Unfortunately, that’s not what’s happening in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania General Assembly passed legislation (HB 1100) approving a large giveaway to the fossil fuel industry using your hard-earned taxpayer dollars. Email your legislators and Governor Wolf TODAY and urge them to support a veto of HB 1100.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and the Texas Railroad Commission (RRC) are letting polluters use the COVID-19 crisis as an excuse to avoid regulations put in place to protect public health and the environment. 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.
