We have a brand new type of action this week, one that we’ve been working on behind the scenes for a while now. It will take place for the next two weeks, until May 15, and we hope for your fervent participation.
The Environmental Protection Agency has issued a request for comments about regulations. They expect the comments to focus on why regulations are bad for someone’s bottom line.
Let’s prove them wrong.
We’d like you to go to the EPA comment page, and voice your support for EPA regulations. We are providing some sample scripts to inspire you, but ask that you make your comments with your own words, and in your own voice. They are on the lookout for identical comments that appear to come from mass mailings.
To keep things as simple as possible, we’re going to ask you to comment on specific types of regulations throughout the next two weeks. We’ll start with the Clean Air Act, which is of critical importance to California, and will subsequently focus on clean water, pollutants, etc.
Tell the EPA that you like the Clean Air Act, and remind the EPA that throughout their nearly 50 years, they have had a lot of environmental victories.
Here’s a sample script/inspiration document that we at Indivisible have put together: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qGumuye1NZGY4AK13dabAbdfvQL9sO1vOpzChft1v8o/edit?usp=sharing
Here’s the official comment page: https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=EPA-HQ-OA-2017-0190
The new administration’s open comment period for EPA environmental regulation rollback is NOW. A flood of written public comments is one of our best tactics for slowing the process down. Time to write instead of call!
They’re looking out for duplicated comments, so please change and use your own words and voice.
