Stop the Tea Party's attack on clean air

Dear Friend,

On Tuesday, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is expected to force a vote in the Senate to prevent the EPA from implementing its life-saving Cross State Air Pollution rule.

Because the Tea Party darling Sen. Paul is using an obscure procedural tactic called the Congressional Review Act, he only needs 51 votes to pass the law to handcuff the EPA from enforcing the Clean Air Act.

Support in the Senate for the Clean Air Act is extremely tenuous. I just signed a petition making sure my Senators know I expect them to protect my health and reject the Tea Party's attack on clean air.
