Vote No on SCRUB Act, yet another attempt to undermine the agencies that keep us safe!

SCRUB gives an unelected commission the power to gut environment, health, and workplace safety regulations.

For Senators Feinstein and Harris: (DC switchboard (202) 224-3121, other #’s below.)

Script: Hi, my name is _______and my zip code is _____I’m calling to ask Senator ____ to oppose HR 998, the SCRUB Act. The bill would create an unelected commission with sweeping powers to strip our agencies of their ability to protect public health and safety and it would open the door to meddling by big business. I worry that this bill is one more effort by President Trump and the GOP Congress to dismantle vital protections for our workforce, our environment, and our health.

The SCRUB Act (Searching for and Cutting Regulations that are Unnecessarily Burdensome), H.R. 998 limits the ability of agencies to do their job and opens the door to meddling by big business. It gives an unelected commission the power to get rid of environment, health, and workplace safety regulations.
