Protect Our Pollution Safeguards and Consumer Protections!

reins

Call Senators Feinstein and Harris and ask them to oppose the REINS Act (DC switchboard (202) 224-3121, other #’s below.)

The REINS Act is an underhanded attempt to hobble the regulatory agencies that keep us safe. It will put workers in danger, loosen pollution safeguards, relax consumer protections and destroy job opportunities in the clean energy economy.

Script: Hello, I am calling from [zip code] to ask [Senator ___] to vote NO on the REINS Act, Senate bill 21. The REINS Act would delay or shut down the development of critical new health and safety protections, obstructing actions that Congress has already mandated by law. It will also effectively shut down the oversight system that protects the public’s health and safety in favor of inaction that pads polluter profits. Thank you.
