Action – Comment now! Even most utilities think this is a bad idea!

This is just the beginning. The Trump EPA is trying out this new weaponized cost/benefit strategy. If it works, they’ll use it to dismantle all our long-standing environmental regulations protecting our air and water from the toxic by-products of fossil fuel generation. Please speak up against this latest attack on our environment.
The deadline is TONIGHT, Wed. 4/17, 11:59 pm EST. Don’t miss this chance!
